I have a gig coming up tomorrow - a private party. I feel special. :)
But, my sister, Briar, will be joining me this time which is super exciting. I love playing with her. The energy we generate together is so human. It's that instant feel good organic emotion that usually only occurs between family. I'll be playing drums (aka my snare) with her on one of her songs. We had a practice today and it went over amazingly - it sounds so great.
I really love being just a musician sometimes. Either being the one playing guitar, drums, accordion, whatever while someone else takes over as the 'front-man'. I can enter my own world and concentrate on just the music. It's different - but extremely refreshing and invigorating. I just have to remember to 'warm up' before I play my snare. I was a little shaky at the beginning of the practice today, but got more comfortable as time wore on.
It was beautiful out today. I can't wait till the summer where I can spend most of my day outside - get some much needed vitamin D. And a tan!! Haha, I'm as white as a ghost.
I've noticed that most musicians share this trait though. Probably due to the fact that they are much too busy practicing and promoting themselves to care whether or not they're 'sun-kissed'. Regardless. I really would like to go one summer where someone doesn't comment on my lack of a tan. :)
Experts say that jumping on a trampoline is one of the many cures for depression. Reason being......how can you seriously be depressed when you are bouncing up and down. I know I can't. Try it. You'll smile. :)
Diddy for the day: I have a betta fish and he's still going strong. I feel bad for the little guy because sometimes forget to feed him...and change his water. On a postive note, when I do change the water, he comes back to life again and swims around like he is a happy fish.
Fact: I used to work at Petsmart.
Fiction: I enjoyed my job.
ps - I found this picture sad. Probably because I feel guilty about denying any type of animal the life of freedom it deserves. And the fish on the right looks identical to my betta.
