July 2, 2007 at 9:19 AM“So, when are you playing again with Sarah and Maria?” asked Joe Dirt at the coffee shop today.
“Oh, I don’t know, I haven’t see them all that much--wait! 4:00, in half an hour, actually. I totally forgot that we scheduled a rehearsal. And now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta run!”
The house was a mess, with laundry on the couch and music scattered here and there. Maria waited while I rounded up the stuff in the living room and the stuff in my brain. My mind is completely out these days. On Wednesday, it was out taking the kitchen’s work crew girls on a hike, and just yesterday it was out seeing Resurrection Pass for the first time. 40 miles in 14 hours and a couple of blisters later, I wasn’t at all prepared to practice with my trio.
We assembled and pulled out the Haydn. I noticed Sarah was sunburned. Maria was talking about her walk on the beach. After battling bronchitis for two months, she seemed glad to be able to get out again.
Despite our long absence from each other, we sounded better together today for some reason. Yes, we sounded much better today.
I know, you’re probably sick of all the photos I keep posting, but I just can’t help but want to share them with you, even if I can’t give you the fresh air and sunshine that goes with them. Who knows, maybe you’ll sound much better, too.
