Winter nights again. if your not sitting in a front of a blazing wood burner many aspects of it are not terribly appealing though.
I am not a big fan of Christmas generally. Or perhaps its current incarnation. Still I suppose I should be used to it by now. I have after all had a few at this point in my life. Still never mind, I am sure others will be able to fill the festive energy gap if I can’t totally get with the program.
So as usual music and more music and bla, bla bla. Getting up is a struggle now. I just can’t get the motivation.
I have just had the first rehearsal with the new band and its looking hopeful. Plenty of smiling faces by the end. And some reasonably musical noises made, so a good start at least.I did blank completely on arrival though. Also I felt quite nervous as it’s been quite a while since I played with any new people. Starting to interact socially more is a bit weird as its been a long time since I met new people. Plus having got conditioned to being locked down I am now getting cabin fever having actually had some social interaction again.
The combination of Covid-19 and Brexit and personal loss means that the world feels very different to me now in many regards. So I shall carry on day to day and not dwell on looking to far into the future which feels very uncertain to me now.

Just do it
