Back on the Road Again
I am off now for the airport soon, and then when I land off to a gig, which starts 20 minutes after I land, what a rock star! I am playing with the Tim Malloys at Kieran's in Minneapolis tonight, always a fine time, but, somehow, I really don't want to leave today.
It's always hard to leave, as much as I want to get home to my cats and my work and my family, but some leavings are harder than others. The sun is shinning today, my nocturnal creature of a best friend is still sleeping peacefully ( which is going to change shortly, I need a ride here ! ) and there is still so much music to do!
We had a lot of fun, shooting with Kitty, and shopping on Santee Alley, making practice tapes , web confrencing with you all , and cooking strange muffins. It's seems to be strawberry season here and if you drive down the right twisty roads there are people selling strawberries as big as your hand and as sweet as sunshine.
Soon I will the sad-about-leaving feeling will change into the anticipation-of-going-home feeling and I will start to think about how fun playing the club will be, and how nice it will be to get woken by excited cats 15 times during the night and how much I need to get done back in the frozen north....
But that hasn't happened yet and for the moment, at least, I wish it all wasn't Now, tho it is a weird feeling to miss Here and miss There, equaly as much , at the same time.
Enough pre-tea morning rambleing!
What is, is, is the lesson here, and I am off to rock tonight.
After I wake the sleeping dead.
