this is just one big brain dump to hopefully help me sleep, even though there are a lot of things on my mind right now…
I’m not altogether too sure why, at 11.45pm on a Tuesday night, I’m sitting here watching the closing credits of Love, Actually.
But I am.
And what closing credits!
The Beach Boys ‘God Only Knows (What I’d Be Without You)’ is such a deliciously awesome piece of harmonised vocal.
And it is used to full effect, over the closing credits of Love, Actually.
Once again I find myself double-booked on the gig front.
This Thursday evening there’s a gig in Witney, and another gig in Bicester, and yes, of course, I would like to go to both.
I’m toying with riding the Bandit to work on Thursday.
The reason for this toying?
Because the weather forecast for Thursday looks reasonable; no other reason.
I went to my weekly guitar lesson this evening but, because my head was all over the place, and also, because I am shattered, it wasn’t exactly brilliant.
Pentatonic scales, chord/melody combination exercises and a big-up finish on Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’.
But although my heart was in it, my head wasn’t in the right place.
I wrote an email this evening.
Open, honest and straight from the heart.
If I could, I would recall it.
Despite the naked honesty the message is wrapped in, I’m a little apprehensive that it might go too far.
My fingers hurt.
From guitar lesson.
There’s probably going to be an Oxford Band Practice next month.
I can’t find my electronic guitar tuner.
Have you got it?
Oh yeah, and the decaf tea thing isn’t working (yet).
