Post performance time! Aahhhhhhh! A big sigh of relief. Flashbacks of what really happened. Music still in my head. A sudden panic in the morning that I have to do it again. An appreciation.
There are a lot of people and things I’m thankful for as I look back at these past 2 weeks of shows, but I’ll keep that more private. What I can, and so willingly would like to be publicly thankful for, is the almighty adrenaline rush that always seems to come at the perfect time. It’s real, you can Google it.
So just for fun, I Googled adrenaline rush,
just to humor you all just to humor myself. I kind of chuckled, as I thought, “That is exactly why adrenaline might be the best rush ever!”
Urban Dictionary defines adrenaline rush as: A sudden burst of energy from an increase of the hormone adrenaline which usually occurs during a stressful event. Sometimes causes feats of abnormal strength.
The last part is what made me chuckle. Just as you think you are on empty, that superhuman neurotransmitter which I have learned to both crave and love so much somehow knows just when to hit the ON switch. The body is amazing.
Here are a few pics from the past two weekends.
