Definitely the most exciting part of this day trip was the serendipitous run-in with Mick Fleetwood (of Fleetwood Mac) while visiting the famous Record Plant recording studio in Sausalito! That's me in front of the studio in the picture below. Coincidentally, this is where Fleetwood Mac recorded their Rumors album back in 1977. After almost running over Mick in the very narrow dirt "parking lot" of the studio, Allison and I were given a full tour. Needless to say, that ranks as one of the top five cool experiences of our lives. In addition to all the various things going on at the church, Allison and I have been writing some new songs, and I'm starting to think about a third recording project. We have about four songs that we've written since we've been in California and three that we wrote after our second project, Ascension, while we were still in Atlanta. And there's one song that I wrote a while back in Nashville that I've always wanted to record. We've been making demos of the new material and have played most all of them in the context of worship at Valley Springs.
The image above is of California Poppies. I took a number of photographs one day along the Miner's Ravine Trail in Roseville. I've been running on this trail a lot recently. It's a beautiful, natural environment in which to run, and it's just a few minutes from our house.
We have a new website now too. However, I'm trying to transfer the rhythmofworship.com domain. Until then, you can get to the site by going to: http://www.rhythmofworship.webs.com/.
