One Crazy Weekend
I’m going to be traveling this weekend to play in/be part of Eric Will (@rakaur)’s wedding. So far, it’s all worked out ok. After some initial hiccups, I located a harp via Terri Langerak in St. Louis, and I’ll be playing on that (a Lyon & Healy Troubadour IV if memory serves). It’s been a long while since I’ve played a lever harp, but the pieces I’m playing fortunately are designed not to make it too difficult to get to the levers while still playing normally.
No, what’s gonna be a trick is staying awake and alert through Saturday. My schedule is pretty well packed through Saturday, and this scarcely includes any time for sleep. My original plan was to stay in St. Louis through Monday (flights were cheaper then anyway), and explore the city. At this point I may simply be passed out for the day, though.
Still, will be good to travel to a new place, and finally see where Eric grew up. He moved out here a few years ago to join me at my then job at EBL Engineers, and I’ve never gone back to see his hometown. He assures me it’s beautiful, and from the pictures I’ve seen I can believe it.
There’s not really much else to say at this point. I’d go into detail about what all will make my days so crazy, but it’s not very much worth describing; it’d be intensely boring to actually read, even though it will probably be very stressful to do. I just wanted to keep myself to writing something once a day.
I told you these posts wouldn’t all be gems.
