I had a pretty sizable gap between paying gigs from autumn to spring. A few days before the project that broke my long fast, I did a trial run. Like a hinge that hasn’t been used in a while, my skills needed to be refreshed. Even after I got going, there were some squeaks that needed quieting.
The time spent with the refresher and warm-up paid off.
I discovered a lot of surface rust that needed scraping. In short order, I had it all cleaned up. A little spit and polish brought me back to form.
Stopping is easy. Getting started again is very hard but always worth the effort.
