Late Evening Tones...

So I’m almost caught up on all my projects again and at the point where I can start thinking about this blog and of what could be posted here. After making 28 calls to prospects tonight and then sending them follow up emails I plugged the headphones into the laptop, cranked up my playlist and did a little web surfing.

During this vegetating process up popped the mellow sounds of Glenn Miller in my ears. What a talent and genius he was with musical arrangements and the smooth sounds of Moonlight Serenade reminded me of an old acquaintance of mine. I think he would have become a good friend had I remained in that area for very long but the whims of fate and life dictated otherwise. I’m told that he was passionate about the big band sound and would sit for the longest time directing orchestras playing over the radio or stereo and you know what? I used to do the same when no one was watching...haven’t we all?
