Ordinarily this would be enough for me, but I do have the gig at Electric Maid tomorrow. I knew if I did not review the pieces in the set, I'd be concerned about my performance. Too close for a night off and the show must go on. After a hot shower, I sat for a few minutes to summon my energies. Pick particular pieces or run the set were the options I saw. Then the thought arrived, play the set backwards. Which is what I've done so far. Beginning with the last piece and working my way back to the beginning. Very tired, but exercising my memory, my heart, and my commitment. When I arrived at the middle I decided a short break was in order.
Maybe now when I go back, I'll play from the beginning of the set and see the middle from both directions.
