This was the last show I played. I've been taking a short break. And although it was super simple, me on the guitar, and Damon on the snare drum and lead guitar, my whole family was there, all ten of em taking up the whole front row. Emma and Ella sat in the front row singing along to the lyrics. I love the support and love of a family, and the way it builds confidence and makes you feel like you are a big time rockstar. Even if I was a rockstar for ten. ( :
I am the youngest of three, still the single one, still the wanderer, still learning how to get motivated after getting distracted, and off course...and my family has loved me and encouraged me every step of the way...sometimes I think, 'this could be my last show', or 'maybe it's time to do something adult like'...but then i have shows like this one where everyone in the audience enjoyed it and responded (there were more then just my family watching) ( : and it makes me want to keep on singin, and playing and writing and enjoying what i love to do most. Why do we second guess things all the time? I think i spend way more time over analyzing my future rather then doing things, and taking steps toward my goals... which i'm thinking needs to change reeeeal soon here.
On another note...
It was my moms 50th bday weekend, so... much to her surprise i called her up on stage to sing 'Leaving on a jet plane' with me. It's a song she sang to us kids while growing up. It's a moment i'll never forget as cheesy as that may sound. The picture is us looking at each other in a moment of both forgetting the lyrics! haha!
