A ‘Borg and a Baritone #13: “Good Vibes”

This was the first back-to-back weekend rehearsals of the season, and the first one I've had in 11 years.  Finishing this post late, due to Food Poisoning that kept me off my feet for over 2 days. Saturday 3/16 Starting on Friday evening, there was a ... "good" vibe in the air. That's the best … Continue reading A ‘Borg and a Baritone #13: “Good Vibes”

A ‘Borg and a Baritone #12: “Camp 8: Mindset Reset!”

Camp 8 was delayed a week, due to snow and sleet, but it ended up being a pretty solid camp. Greyhound didn't suck! And a little boy reminded me of something important. Break! I had to condense a few planned things on Saturday down to a few hours on Saturday afternoon, including 2 different podcast … Continue reading A ‘Borg and a Baritone #12: “Camp 8: Mindset Reset!”

A ‘Borg and a Baritone #10: “Camp 7 – Emptied The Tank”

Work was put in, a new wrinkle was added for Visual Block, and a streak ended with Greyhound. That, and much more, after the Break. Saturday started a little differently. Before leaving, my little brother and sister visited for a couple of hours before we all went down to my Dad's for a few minutes. … Continue reading A ‘Borg and a Baritone #10: “Camp 7 – Emptied The Tank”

A ‘Borg and a Baritone #9: “Camp 6 – New Level!”

A different vibe was in the air on Sunday - did we just level up? Greyhound tried its best to screw up the entire weekend. More after the Break. I should have known from the very beginning that Saturday would be... 'trying': I actually got some sleep! Except that I slept until 10 AM, *just* … Continue reading A ‘Borg and a Baritone #9: “Camp 6 – New Level!”
