Well, to start on a happier note, a very happy birthday to my long time friend, Patrick Moraz. Lesse, this is number 58? I think? Wow. And just getting better with every passing year. Those hands have blessed this planet with some amazing music.
I adore Patrick, and would usually talk about him for hours. I m a little down at the moment though, because the first gig Del Castillo has played in over a month is happening tonight in Dallas, and I am in San Antonio. Couldn't get the day off;had to work. Well, someone has to after all- bills sadly do not pay themselves. So I am staying in to pout and play the DVD or something to distract myself. They are the opening act for someone I had never heard of, Monte Montgomery, so it is a short set anyway. But I am jonesing here people! (for those who do not keep up with archaic colloquialisms, that means I am really anxious to see them again.)
I do not know yet quite how I am going to handle months at a time where they are out on the road. Not well, if the last 30 days are any indication.
Well, it's off to the Indian restaurant to treat myself, then something to distract my mind, at least until they are off stage. Argh.
