circus act

It is impossible to imagine a more complete fusion with nature than that of the Gypsy.
Franz Liszt

there are small moments during my day when i actually understand that i am doing exactly what i need to be doing. they don't happen often, but they do come along. today. i had a couple of those moments.

i have a person who is steeping in daily regret about some bad choices (i can totally relate) and i was able to offer him an alternative way of seeing his own situation. his posture changed and so did the light in his eyes. actually it was magic.

i have managed to keep several plates spinning in the air simultaneously for awhile now. at first there was much applause and the atmosphere of a festive and jovial night prevailed. this has shifted however, and i find myself wondering why so many plates and when will i get to take a break. this is such a healthy sign for me. typically i would want to spin even more plates, and maybe do it blindfolded. and then i realize that it is all really gonna be okay and i can be foolish and make mistakes. and that i can be frustrated and survive. and i love the frenzy and the mayhem. it is what i grew up around and it is what makes me feel comfortable.

i am thankful i can find comfort, and i am thankful i get to do 6 shows a week.

do yourself a favor and definitely watch the vid in the sidebar. you will not be sorry.

today's sound choice is damien rice performing "rootless tree"
