the carbon footprint of musicking

After all that angst, my schedule for the next few months is, despite losing a couple of dates, turning out better than I had expected. Some exciting performances coming up—new people, new places; old friends, new contexts. The only real bummer is that they aren’t in any kind of logical configuration, geographically or temporally: a gig here, a gig there, back to fulfill teaching duties, over for another gig, etc. Still trying to patch up some more dates to make this a little less wasteful, but I shudder at the thought of how many carbon points I will be burning up doing this.

Anyway, ho-hum, back to the paperwork… :-(

I hope you'll be heading into my neck of the woods at some point. Don't make me come out there...

I look forward to catching you play at some point.

’Fraid I’m not likely to be heading your way for a little while yet, but you never know, maybe at some point…. It all depends on grants/funding (i.e. yet more paperwork, administration, etc.)…
Yeah, likewise, I also look forward to meeting you at some point.
