Here I am In Wales, three gigs into the ‘tour’… waiting… Saturday and Wednesday are the next two.
Truth be told, a few more mid-week dates would not have gone amiss… there is a lot of time between dates on this tour which I largely managed to avoid on the last one. Not that I am complaining! Even though the dates aren’t packed together - because I know what I’m about and have purpose - I feel quite present to the whole thing, the time between dates doesn’t feel like dead time… it actually feels pregnant with possibility. I wrote something new on Monday/Tuesday which feels good; I haven’t written anything that I’ve been happy with for months! I speak about finding/looking out for inspiration on the tour and this one came out of a simple conversation with my Dad over breakfast on Monday!
Here’s to these pregnant pauses! I’m hoping they will bring more opportunity for conversation and inspiration and give birth to more words and music! But also… roll on Saturday can’t wait to play!
