Decision

I have made a Decision.

I made this decision at the Enter the Haggis show tonight, when I was talking to James, the drummer, between sets; I'd been drumming on the table all night, and he asked if I was a drummer, and I said "I used to be..."

And then I was like "wait, but I have the djembe and the bodhran. So sorta. I just haven't been around a drum kit in a while."

He said "The drums are just waiting for you to get back to them, y'know."

And I sighed wistfully.

And I listened to the second set and all of their gorgeous thundering magic (and btw oh hai libido), and I thought, wait.

And I came to a Decision.

And that decision is this.

I'm not gonna say "not anymore", or "I used to be". Not about things I love.

I am a drummer and a percussion faerie, and I am a dancer, and I make things. I've been talking about my art again lately for maybe the first time since Vegas, and I miss making things and I am going to *do* it again.

And I am.

Didn't used to be.

Am.

And if it's something I love but I'm not? The answer is not yet. *eyes fiddle*

And there. You have been advised. *decisive nod*
