Back on line, that is. Our eight-day retreat started a little earlier than posted on Saturday, and ended a little later than expected last Sunday, giving me very little time to arrive in Jamaica Plain for our Monday morning recording practice and afternoon session. I'm video taping some of the work in progress so I can share a kind of informal (very informal) "making of" movie with you. (We are recording an album to be released at Christmas with our concerts.)
Yesterday was my 31st anniversary of entrance, and today several other sisters celebrate their entrance anniversary: Sr. Laura, 30 years; Sr. Sharon Anne, 48 years! We were to have witnessed the ceremony of entrance into novitiate this morning after Mass, but the priest didn't show up, so we are all on hold about Mass (especially the novitiate candidates). Meanwhile, the music session still starts at 10:00 and ends...at 6:00 (hopefully Mass will be rescheduled for 5:30, however). I was regretting the fact that I didn't bring a camera to Mass this morning so I could snap a little picture to share with the blogging world of our little group of new novices, but now I have another chance. If I remember, I can bring the little camera down to the studio, too, so you have an idea of what it looks like when we make an album... and you can pray we stay on pitch!
I prayed for the special intentions sent to me for my retreat time; please reciprocate!
