So I wrote a blog last summer about having fun at work.
But last night it went one step further. I was part of a party. On stage. At work.
There was one moment, during Jacob’s Ladder, where one guitarist and the banjo player stood up for the first time all night, grooving in sync, huge smiles on their faces, one doing so despite a dodgy knee. Another guitarist, the fiddle player and the accordionist were standing on the chairs while playing. I kept desperately trying to dance while playing the piano standing up but kept realising I couldn’t and had to sit down again. And this was in a theatre environment.
I have never seen a choir dance so freely as ours did last night. And in the words of the director of the theatre/fiddle player/stage manager – “it was a party”.
And it was a great party. And great parties make you feel good.
But not every day at work will be a party. Even if you’re a musician. And especially if you’re not.
So enjoy the party while it lasts.
