Today is a significant day: we formally said goodbye to the Opal Creative Space that we may seek and find the next facility for the next stage of our work and play in Seattle.
Over the past three years and four weeks and three days, this space has hosted rehearsals, recording sessions, painting sessions, house concerts, and been “guest housing” for some very special visitors to Seattle. On April 9th 2006, we did our first official House Concert in this space, and Robert Scoble (in addition to documenting the event) brought Buzz Bruggeman over to mingle with Pete Wilson, Mats Myberg, and the other various Seattle luminaries in the audience.

To celebrate the completion of our work in this space, Lee and Diane came over for dinner tonight (poor Paul got literally stuck on the I-90 bridge…!) and then Lee and I did one last ‘clean up’ acoustic show for Sofie, Regina, and Diane in the, now totally empty, pristine, and reverberant space.
Of course, we missed you Paul.
Some new pieces in the air in addition to that old familiar sound of sweetness that comes from being in the right place at the right time.
What a joy to let this go knowing how much has grown here – and how much more is now possible that our work here is completed.
