What Happens When You Play Live


Last night I was hosting the Thirsty Mind Open Mic. On  my 2 song turn I played a new song and a classic Roy Orbison song. Something happened at the end that was one of those moments that you can either fight or go with. I'm so glad that via this video I got to watch myself at a time I managed instinctively to go with what happened. It gives me more trust for the future.  Going with it is always the right choice, but how could you know that unless you have opportunities to practice what you would do if circumstances were not controllable. It doesn't actually doesn't wreck everything, but makes it better. Who knew?

Happy New Year,
