Just a quickie...

...before the Fingernails start clamouring to be fed. Yesterday turned out to be a pretty good day. Yes! The opticians COULD mend my sunglasses cheaply and in less than 24 hours; Yes! The orthodontist COULD do something about straightening out my lower teeth, and Yes! I probably COULD go and work in Santiago de Chile for three weeks, starting mid-May. This last one has really got my juices flowing as Chile is a country I don't know too well, only having visited Punta Arenas a few years ago. When you're a professional musician, it's imperative you regularly play away from home. If not, you cease to develop, you stagnate and you go backwards. Unfortunately, many people in this business also apply this philosophy to their relationships and marriages, which is an awful shame. You can only be truly free if you're emotionally well-anchored, and that doesn't just fall into your lap; it's something you have to work at and invest yourself in.
