Yesterday, I had a wonderful time at the EK A&S championship. I quite enjoyed working gate, observing all the beautiful art and science on display, connecting with fellow Scadians, and not performing at all.
(Not that I don’t enjoy performing. I still very much do. Looking forward to it in 2 weeks, at the EK Bardic Championship where I will compete for the first time. But it was lovely to be part of an event in a different space and not feel any need to be “on”. I’d go so far as to speculate that others might have found that refreshing as well.) 🙂
