Hey, remember that time that I got that gig at a farmers market, and was super excited, and showed up an hour late because I had to work at 4am that morning, and forgot my piano cord, and waited for an hour awkwardly sitting at my piano for Mark to go get it, and then tried playing my songs, but realized that I really couldn’t do this kind of setting without an amp of some kind, and tried to sing loud but no one could hear me past the walls of my little tent, and I gave up after 20 minutes and went home?
Well, I remember it. Like it was yesterday. Wait, it was yesterday!
But honestly, I’m grateful. All musicians have those stories of awkward gigs they didn’t get paid for and got totally messed up by every possible thing that could have gone wrong. And now I have that story.
Here’s to staying positive!
