So I’ve been playing a small open mic night once a week.  Nothing big – show up, drink a couple of beers, play for 10 minutes, drink a couple more beers, go home.  Five years ago I couldn’t bring myself to get back on the stage.  I tried setting goals, psyching myself up – and failed.  But what a difference 18 months makes.

I still have a long way to go.  My guitar is iffy – last night I kept forgetting the progression on a song I’d already played onstage.  I’m still not as comfortable onstage as I’d like, but that’s getting better.  Vocally, I’ve lost a lot of flexibility and it’s not as resonant as I would like, but I’ve still got some power and I think I can fix most of my problem spots.

Music is my truth.  It’s what I love.  And now I can share that truth and love without trying to hide it at the same time.
