I'm excited and I'm ready. It seems more and more that I needed to be here just for the one performance experience, opening doors to the potential within me. And that the rest of the time here was needed for retrospect and meditation. But a new day dawns and the road calls with the promise of exciting meetings and experiences in music and storytelling and new inspired songs and more diverse life-energies. I'm looking forward to busking and how it will build my confidence more, allowing me to pursue more and accomplish more.
Two months ago - 19th May - I landed at Hull in England. I didn't know where the road would take me or how things would progress. I was nervous, uncertain, worried about finances, stressed with the pressure of possibly having to return to Amsterdam early and with no great tales to tell or achievements to show. A lot can happen in two months - and for me this "lot" has happened mostly within me. This has all been preparation . . . the outer journey of music and singing and performing has yet to start - this is the "Minstrel Quest" . . . and I feel that its time is just breaking .
