the day after a gig i usually post a short entry on the blog to let you know how it went. however, i had very mixed feelings about my performance on saturday and didn’t really know what to write. i made a couple of mistakes that completely threw me off balance. it was a combination of things. usually i take 15-to 20 minutes before i get upon stage to be by myself and focus. this was impossible at rodeo because the “dressing room” was full of people hanging out, having a good time and not really getting the fact that some people like to prepare. (plus the air was so thick with smoke of the wacky variety) that i was probably half off my head too!)
anyway, anything i say about it, is just an excuse. i think we did a pretty good job in spite of the difficulties and hopefully the audience thought so too.
mistakes are just that, mistakes. and i am going to stop beating myself up about it.
thank you to everyone who said great things to me afterwards. it really is very special regardless of how i felt.
looking forward to getting back in the saddle and doing it better next time…
One thought on “a personal postmortem”
Listen up Diva lady
You are, in my humble (not!!!) opinion always a dazzling performer so less of this beating your exceptional self up about little, tawdry mistakes and a little more appreciation for just how cool and brilliant you are.
So there, the Management has spoken. WORD. xxx
