Hard Decisions

My show is starting...and I'm not there. 

The expected weather did me in. It's only May and the forecast has been an unchanging mid-90's with high dew points. In May. On downtown streets without shade. My body physically can't handle that safely anymore. Is it worth the toll on my health for a one day art fair which I really love? The decision this time was no, it's not worth endangering my health. But it was an unbelievably hard decision which I'll probably spend the day second guessing. But it's done and now today is just another studio day...

Don't feel bad, it's better safe than sorry. Make yourself something beautiful in the studio. Play and have fun. You made the right decision.

Ah Bonnie. I know how hard it skip a show ....but so hard to work in that sorta heat....set-up, break-down, and being pleasant with customers who are as hot as we are. Enjoy your day in the studio. Seems like a good decision to me.
