Slightly Less Scattered

"My time of day is the dark time..."

Guys and Dolls was the first pit orchestra I ever played in. It was my senior year in high school, and my french horn chops would juuust barely make it to the end of the show each night. And I loved it. Every second of it. It was one of the main reasons I wanted to get better at the horn, so I could make it through an entire musical without getting tired.

And ever since I first heard those lyrics sung by Sky Masterson, I have known exactly how he feels. I have sung this song on numerous occasions... often late at night. My favorites were when I was living up in Westfield, NJ for a few years. I would literally roam the abandoned old-style main street around 1-2am and sing this song, sometimes to myself, sometimes a little louder than I should have...

But I have always loved the nighttime. Everything stops. And I can think clearly all of a sudden. I can make good decisions for just a few precious hours of the day. I write really good music after the sun goes down. And I kinda hate that my "thinking clearly" time is now my bedtime. Getting up early is terrible. I'm no use to anyone before Noon anyway, and I really don't hit my stride until about 4 or 5pm... And you can save your lectures on biorhythms and getting my body used to a new schedule... It just doesn't work for me.

No matter when I wake up. No matter how long I've been awake. Nighttime is my time. I truly love it. And I truly miss it.

"It's a marvelous night for a moondance..."
