41 in 47 or 1 in 6?
So, my astute readers will probably realize that today is, in fact, not Easter Sunday. It is, actually, 6 days before Easter Sunday.
“But” they’d ask, “if Lent is always 40 days long, how did you managed to record 40 days worth of songs, starting on Ash Wednesday, and not end up on Easter Sunday?”
Well, as it turns out, Lent is longer that 40 days. In fact, it’s always 46 days in length.
“But” they’d continue, “how is that possible? Why don’t they just tell us it’s 46 days long?”
Little did I know, the six Sundays that occur between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday are not counted. I guess I repressed that fact along with countless other facets of my catholic upbringing.
“Huh.” they’d quip.
Yup. Huh. Indeed.
“So what does that mean for your 40 in 40 project? Will you be recording 6 more songs and re-branding the project to 46 in 46?”
No. I will not. Sorry. Instead, here’s what I’ll be doing:
I’m going to spend the days between now and Easter Sunday working on one song. I’ll give my full attention to one song to see how much better I can do when I’m more relaxed and not scrambling to finish recording by midnight each night.
You’ll just have to wait and see. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
