Things Change - always.

I think this was the first "open mic" event this store has had on a Wednesday evening. It was at a Sam Ash Music Store. Anyway, by the time I arrived the event was all but over.
The best laid plans are often laid to waist by reality. And, I am facing a reality today. But, I think I just may be changing my plans for the better. One of the projects I had in mind when I came to Vegas was to photograph buskers (street entertainers) on The Strip and at Fremont Street Experience, and perhaps write a book, or at least some articles on them. Well, at least for now, it appears that my left foot and both legs are telling me that I am not going to do it, They are not going to let me do the required walking. And, that is the bad news. The good news is that I am slowly moving toward what I think is a better idea anyway. And, one much easier for me to accomplish. However, I may not get a good start at this new project for a few weeks. Much of my time will be spent just getting ready to do the project.

No, I am not going to walk a tightrope across the Grand Canyon, and I am not jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. I am simply moving indoors (for the most part) to photograph at “open mic” events. It is as simple as that. Oh, I do hope there will be times when I feel like walking. I hope that my foot and legs will get better, but I’m tired of waiting for that to happen.
I do like to walk The Strip to see the show that the tourist create.

Last night I caught the last act at an open mic event a mile from my house. I had planned on going for the whole event, but I got busy on another project. It seems that when I left Oklahoma about 1.5 months ago I must have left my memory there, because I damned sure can’t find it around here.

So, now much of my computer time will be spent searching for “open mic” events to attend. There are lots of them throughout this valley.
