Some folks were asking for an update on how it’s going. So many thoughts, realisations – feels like it’s been a couple of weeks of experiences in 3 days. Weather has been a bit of a stress – Jack ended up using wooden boxes as bass drum and floor tom cos he couldn’t get a cab w/ his stuff from Bridgeton. Not sure if Dougal was going to make it from Edinburgh today. Blah, blah.
The weather has been such a source of inspiration too. Nothing is constant/ unchangeable … the tempo of cities, political systems etc (to use extremely crass/ simplified for brevity’s sake language). Plus Glasgow has felt, in some ways, like it was the late 19th or early 20th century.
1st. Thinking of Leonard Peltier. Thankful for Cloudy. And Alison.
2nd. Different kinds of marriages – with nothing to do with the white gown/ tails kind. The return of Aussie Gareth. Jack blazes.
3rd. You know you’re OK playing w/ someone who takes their shoes off to play on concrete floor in minus 5 degrees temperature. Thanks Jude.
