My dad, the magician blog
I hit a wall today. I made a track/song which is about holding Horace whilst all the kids stroked him. Horace and I had an understanding. At the parties, lots of excited children would get up and stroke him, sometimes too vigourously. It was my job to hold him and make sure they did not. I wrote part of this track and then showed it to Laura and Andy. They helped me shape it more. I wrote a bit more.
Then, I probably hit that wall.
Lunch happened in a cafe. We decided that we should rest this afternoon. No point in pushing on through something painful.
After lunch, I wandered around town for an hour, remembering what the real world looked like.
Came back to South Street and suddenly had a second wind for an hour. I wrote a tune about my Mum being a mother lion. I like it. It sounds a bit like Prodigy's No Good. I then solidified what will probably be the main musical motif for the show and there we go. It turned out to be a good day.
Came home and watched Back to the Future 2 with Andy and Laura.
Night night. Tom xxx
