Tales from the Road – Orbs, and a Decent Proposal
I am absolutely loving these home concerts. I played another last Thursday for the lovely Sally and Paul in Petersfield. I think the plan was to hold the concert in the garden, but the weather was dreadful, so we gathered in their living room. It was lovely to see a few familiar faces from past concerts at Witchfest, and some new ones too.
The song Obsession from my Herne’s Apprentice album has already had a very rich and varied life. I’ve met a number of Pagan couples who hold that as ‘their song’, a few people have told me that they’ve made love with it playing in the background. It’s a very sensual, erotic love song, and I am very proud of it. Well, during this home concert another wonderful event took place around Obsession. I was just about to play the song, introducing it, when Paul stopped me. He then got onto his knees and proposed to Sally right there, witnessed by their friends. It was so lovely to have been there. I’m also pleased to report that Sally said “yes”, and much hugging and celebration followed. When I played the song it was just for them, on this most special of nights. How wonderfully romantic 🙂
The picture shows the audience that night. Paul and Sally are second and third from the right. Thanks also to the technical wizardry of Lizzy (second from the left) who managed to set the camera’s timer for this great photo. Those who are into photographic ‘orbs’ will see that event the Spirits were with us that night!
Thank you to Sally, Paul, and everyone else who made me feel so welcome!
