The New Guy at Thursday’s Jam

The four of us (Lori, Rebecca, John, and I; Phil couldn’t make it) got together last Thursday night. Here’s what Rebecca said about the jam afterwards.

Joe, if I may be so bold, you seemed a bit different since committing to and announcing your “transition”... I dunno—you seemed more relaxed, more experimental I guess. Like you really just *felt* better. Hard to describe. But it was cool, because it made me realize that maybe I’m not crazy for wanting to do the same thing, because maybe there’s really something to it. Not that I’ll be doing it any time soon, but nonetheless… Ah, I’m babbling. The point is I’m happy to see you pursuing this. And I hope it all goes the way you want it to. Whatever that may be 😉

I realized upon reading this, she’s right. I hadn’t quite thought of it that way. But, I’m sure it’s the result of that bit of extra confidence that I’ve been giving myself lately because of this “career change.” I often say things to myself like, “hey, this is my job” or “I’m a musician, I should play like one.” It also doesn’t hurt that overall I’m much happier with who I am and what I am trying to be than I have been in a long time.
