Session #11 on Pollifax was supposed to be Lorah Campbell. Unfortunately, I jinxed myself after boasting to her that “the natural world always helps me out.” Well, this time, it spat on me. Rutgers Gardens was absolutely freezing. Night came all too quickly. And of course, my tiny, usually-reliable, Zoom H2 just stopped recording halfway into a song. I felt embarrassed. Especially since Lorah is such a wonderful person. Definitely the cheeriest person I’ve ever met.
So, we’ve rescheduled to a later day. Lame. I’m already breaking the #1 rule of a Take-Away-Show. They’re not supposed to get a second chance. Even Vincent Moon said, “They have 3 minutes to tell the story and only one chance to do it.” Well, it was my fault and so I’ll let this one go. But at least I got one really great song out of it. I’ve just cut up Lorah’s 2-minute song entitled “Glow.” Not a Wanderer Session but it’s a great souvenir!
