We played a benefit tonight, and at eight pm when we took the stage, it was 88 degrees and lord knows what the heat index was. You really do this because you love it, by the time we left the stage.....the three of us looked as if we had taken a shower together.....our clothes were dripping wet with sweat. I am exhausted, I have had a sinus infection this week, for two days I couldn't drive because I was so dizzy( no blonde jokes)that meant no classes also. I did every thing I knew to do to be able to sing tonight. For the love of it, ain't it amazing what we do for love.
Playing music, I go the extra mile.......for the love of it. It was a good cause, a successful fund raiser, but I hope that next year they do it in the spring or fall. You will probably hear me whine about the heat again next weekend......Rick and I are playing a festival Saturday afternoon. It seems, on stage, when it is this hot and humid, no amount of water keeps you hydrated. So as I sit here typing these keys, with water bottle beside me..... I bid you all, good night sweet dreams. And why you ask, do I do it? For the love of it.
