I survived the epic day/night

Wow. Yesterday was a test of endurance. Long, long day.

After a manic shift at work, I rushed around to prepare for the evening of music. My day started at 8am and went until 3am. Dag yo. At the Q, I played 2 1/2 hours for a small and wonderful audience with new faces and new perspectives. Then I packed up and hauled over to Ralph's Diner for another set. Which actually started at 1220. I played for an hour, with a few bits of "Rocky Horror" and other random snippets that people were shouting out requests for. Again, new faces and perspectives in the audience. Traphiq was fan-freaking-tasticly solid, entertaining, and in their element, all cozy and happy to be in a rock venue instead of acoustic in a cafe. I wrapped up with a slower, downer song (aren't they all downers?) but it seemed perfect looking back over the whole night.

Thanks to everyone, new and old (to me). You all listened and enjoyed. I appreciate emensely. Oh, and it looks like I need to start making more bracelets and CDs - I've nearly run out!

And onward we go.

I'll leave you with this quote:

"Argue for your limitations,
and sure enough, they're yours."
Illusions' by Richard Bach)
