defying the divine intervention of several inches of snow
i play my first ever solo gig
at the brown lion in the jewellery quarter
o and j are there in support
(though there is no simpson)
it seems a long way from open mikes at the station last summer
more like playing in my front room
there is a flow that comes from rehearsing the material
allowing me to own the songs in a way i haven't up to now
the digital tuner i bought on tuesday proves a good investment
cutting down on the fiddling about between songs
the crowd is sparse but not unappreciative
there are even a few chuckles at some of my 'witticisms'
it's a pity that some people couldn't make it through the blizzard conditions
but there will be another time...
