Giggin' in the Riggin'

Saturday, March 15, 2008 
I get knackered and lethargic more quickly, these days. 

JFM&J, how old does that sound? See how I’m taking up swearing; after a life of expletive abstinence, it’s quite difficult.

I’ve got a mate, G, visiting for Easter. I’m quite excited about that; we go back, donkeys’ years.

 I have found that progressively, I can’t play or sing my stuff. I had kind of stopped writing or even really listening to live music. The other week, I wrote a peculiarly, out of character song; a naked and vulnerable unashamed love song all about, ’She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named,’. I haven’t seen or been scene  much  of late so it’s about 2 years in the making. Lol. Writing it was quite cathartic and I was able to revisit some of the emotions and experiences of the time! Ho-hum, moving swiftly .. a while, reworking and twiddling, I became terribly lonely and miserable and sent a cry to my mate C. (Cheers, honey. x) We got totally dispatched and she persuaded me to have a go at my new song. H came round and started to play it. It was a bit weird, trying to explain how to sing and play my own post-orgasmic experience to H; a good mate but not, that kind of mate! Today she popped in with a sheet-hot version of my song on disc. I’m stoked, choked and generally over-excited. Thanks to 2 beautiful, generous women who have re-kindled my passion for music; rocked me out of my lull and set me a challenge. You know who you are and I love you. If anyone can make it to  T' Borough Footie Club on March 22nd, I’m hoping to sing my song with one of the headlining artists. (All local, female musicians.) We’ll see how it goes. I’m really chuffed - have I already mentioned that?

Best wishes KB.
