Very well written Mek, those early nerves when staring to play at a concert are eventually overcome as the music takes over your body as it obviously does to the young lady in the clip.
It used to be that way with me but I played in groups not as an individual.

L.B. I do like how you build up to the beginning of play, the pressure, the fear, the excitement. Well done!

this is a splendid bit of seemingly self disclosive poetry .. original and one I can truly empathise with .... I really need to go tune my mandolin ....

Those early stage nerves before we start playing. The playing is of course the easy part, we have practiced and rehearsed so often to get here. And of course the music is good so now everyone relaxes, self included.

Yes, I remember similar nerves from early performances which for me began at eighteen and i was solo singing which is even more \'personal\' than solo instrument which i later went on to.

Well depicted piece from you.

Beyond anxiety: as Our Only way of Life
Doggerel Dave said:

The trouble is..(oh no it’s not that D Dave putting his oar in again? Sorry but Yes!)
The trouble is history and culture are very powerful. Solutions, of course not easy. Beyond the ‘inevitability of gradualness’ and the bearing of witness, as you are doing L.B., I (and this is very personal) would like to ban the pronoun ‘we’ (used here, there, and everywhere) from most discourse. Name names and know that Power, where it lies and how it is used is a much more useful concept.

Regards, Dave

Unfortunately the history we are told about is written by the winners, what if the losers were correct, we could be living in a wonderful world.

Neville said:


without any doubt history holds many secrets .. some of them are crying out to be heard ..

Here you have given a few a voice ...
whilst others still are maybe best left where they have rightfully been buried ...

having said that, I am a great believer in the truth will eventually out ....

A compelling read my friend ..

dusk arising said:

There is much shameful history to recount if that is what history teaches us to do. But history is not for the making or the taking, it is done with. Ours and theirs is the future and if we are humane then that future is for you and me and all mankind to hand in hand walk together into a future of our hearts desire.

it is an honour to call you my literary friend, my friend ...

having first found these words of yours several days ago .. I have been in awe of them since and eager to place some of my own beneath them .. something adequate that is .. I am still struggling to find them .......

I felt a message in these sincere lines, is about to say: hugging others\' wounds could make our wounds heal faster, and the illusionary borders between all of us, would disappear instantly.
