Let's Get Down to Business

I've decided that the time has finally come for me to start a blog. I'm a writer by training and profession, and I've journaled off and on during different periods of my life, but I've never been consistent about it, and whenever I find a random hour to write in my journal I have so much to say that my hand gets tired before I've nearly completed my thoughts. On the other hand, I'm a pretty quick typist. I've become notorious among my friends for ridiculously long but entertaining emails and heartfelt informal music reviews, and I've known for awhile that such ramblings might translate well into a blog, but I never got around to it. Now I'm in the midst of wedding planning, and I feel like there is so much going on in my life that I can't keep all of my friends and family updated. I've also realized that the wedding planning process is a unique period in time that I'd like to document, if only for my own enjoyment and lasting memories. Thus, this blog.

Being a music freak who appreciates a well-placed lyric reference, I've decided to at least try to title all of my posts with lyric snippets or song titles. We'll see how long this lasts. This first post is titled after one of my favorite Vic Chesnutt songs, recently covered by my favorite band, Widespread Panic, to open the third night of their incredible three-night run at the Chicago Theatre this past weekend. This night was my 75th concert with this band since my first show on April 18, 2000.

Let's get down to business, shall we?  It's time to stop playing games...

When Panic opens with this song, it tends to foreshadow a killer show, and Sunday night was no different. But that's a topic for another post. However, I just found the "let's get down to business" message appropriate for this experience of embarking on a personal project I've been procrastinating for years.  I hope everyone enjoys the reading as much as I enjoy the writing!
