Ooh, that was just a little phase (smashing plates to relieve pain). I don't do that any more but it was good fun, a release. I recommend it to everybody. That's as long as you're not hurting anybody. And find a place where you're not going to be in the way of anything. Oh and don't destroy anything valuable that you'll regret later.
I felt some intense pain during that time, and I would say that is where the depth of this came. You will feel that during different parts of the performance. Some of it is really deep music, and you can't just write it unless you've experienced certain things or else it's just surface music.
It was mainly the pitch in the second, I felt a little different, no pain, nothing like that as far as the first inning. But I wasn't loose. You know, live arm, the same giddy up that I have had in the past. I was kind of worrying about that and as soon as I threw that pitch I knew what it was.
I was definitely in too much pain for most of the season and not feeling the way I want to feel. Just to feel good enough to practice and play the game is something I guess I've taken for granted a little bit.
But that's always the way; it don't make no difference whether you do right or wrong, a person's conscience ain't got no sense, and just goes for him anyway. . . . It takes up more room than all the rest of a person's insides, and yet ain't no good . . .
Have you not a moist eye, a dry hand, a yellow cheek, a white beard, a decreasing leg, an increasing belly? Is not your voice broken, your wind short, your chin double, your wit single, and every part about you blasted with antiquity?
