steve steve
a worried stagehand is looking for me
its ok
here i am….can i go on this way?
mate you can go on anyway you like now ive found ya…
sit on the sofa if you like
i sit there waiting to go on
i hear my music start up
and i stride on
i pray to the god of show biz for good luck
but i dont forget the words
but i dont forget to move and groove
you know what
i was ok
thats good enough
i felt like it was you know kinda good kinda ok
i can never really tell
i felt it all flow thru and around me
im glad i didnt forget the words
or trip over
or anything weird or strangely embarrassing
i acquitted myself…did my thing
several of the others congratulate me…thats nice…
and yes
i had some conversations today
i could talk again
the bad magnets lost their pull for a while
oh i wanna get home now
too much going on
see old school friend bronny
whos now a professor up here
she enjoyed it anyway
ditto graham nunn
was the prime minister there…?
the weather was excellent
the other players n singers a marvel….
the show a huge success
i happy at last
to be a cog in a mechanism

    Time for the Time Being to rest and enjoy his home and family.

    Thanks for putting it out there

    Thanks for the songs

    Thanks for the words

    Your music has pulled many a soul though rough waters.

    Sail on softly and slowly for awhile my friend.

    And when your done slacken off
    how about putting out that follow-up to Starfish the unreleased "Blobfish" Album.

    That blobfish kind of looks like a record company exec. Just give um a cigar!

    Seriously Steve Thank you.

    Self torment is no good. Sleep deprived thought processes can get scary, ie. Whats the point and whats my role etc. Etc. Glad u re-affirmed ur talents.

    Get to go home? Good news. I gotta admit I'm finding it hard to really get into U#23. I think I'm going back to Forget Yourself for a while. It fits my recent mood better. "How to lay out in a storm…." What a beautiul, heavy song. Can't drink. Took up smoking Swishers. Wish I could see the Church play…just once.

    Yeah SK, we are all cogs in the mechanism… good to see you last night. Images of London, such a great song. A true pleasure to be part of the crowd that gathered to share Kev's stories. Just posted my thoughts on it all this morning on my blog.

    Travel safe SK… be in touch soon,

    I'm glad it turned out well for you! When the crowd is happy and you walk away feeling good, all is well. I wish you many more of those nights.

    Yay! Glad it went well.

    I feel for the stagehand though. Poor guy was probably thinking "ah fuck, I've lost Steve Kilbey!" You probably took a couple months off his life.

    Mate it wasn't OK. Along with the rest of your mates you were awesome.
    Touched hearts that weren't prepared
    Opened eyes that hadn't seen
