Haiku #110 - Conducting

the ones at the helm
don't fall asleep at the wheel
the show must go on

Today's matinee was the first time I've conducted since our break.  Last night I had a craaaazy dream about the show: we had technical difficulties at a performance, and the entire cast and crew got in a 15-passenger van (there are about 40 of us), and our director fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into a concrete barrier and a guardrail.  Anxious much?  I was a little nervous at the show, but overall it went well for the first time conducting in a few weeks.  Whew!  Back to my regular chair at the second keyboard tonight.  Three more shows in Chicago - I like it here and I'll be sorry to leave!
