(Apologies to those that might have got just the heading as a post - I accidentally hit publish after just the title!)
Since the folk festival, I've been thinking about buying a Cajon:
You can't picture it?
Here, let me help:
I think that after seeing the Pacific Curls play with one, hearing how easy it is for Rory McLeod to just sing a story, watching an easy songwriting process on Once and enjoying playing around with words in some of my more recent posts, I'm feeling more and more strongly that my destiny will involve sitting in the dark corner of a stage while other people do most of the hard work and I just chime in occasionally with a little beat or percussion and maybe echo what they're singing in a quite voice, perhaps a harmony if I really practice hard in my room by myself to my headphones.
Who knows, maybe one day...!
