High And Dry

March 31, 2009

“… don’t leave me high… don’t leave me dry…” 

I dropped in to play at an open mic tonight. I knew the folk running the gig and they very kindly gave me a slot to play 4 songs. It’s a small town… I also knew all of (bar maybe one) the people who were playing. Dubbel-in Tow-en Is A Very Small Tow-en.

I enjoyed the set and the audience were really complimentary.

Here’s the problem, and I might have blogged this before, how on earth do I come down from the buzz ? Here I am at past midnight having got the bus home and I’m not quite ready for sleep.

How do people (musicians, songwriters) come down from gigs ? I know some of the obvious stuff but bloody hell if I’m buzzing after just playing 4 songs how can I balance that with ‘real life’. I still have to work tomorrow.

Glass half full: people liked my songs and my performance. I liked the flattering words they used. So I’ll be back for more next Monday 🙂

    That\’s all well and good, but are you gonna play piano for me as I walk down the aisle in September? Airfares are STUPIDLY low at the moment! 🙂

    Surprisingly 15-20 minutes quite meditation can work wonders.
