I was walking home from the gym this morning, trying not to slip on the wet leaves splattered across the pavement, when I noticed my neck was unusually sore. I thought perhaps I had pushed myself too much at the gym. Yet that didn’t make much sense, as the pain was radiating from a new spot, nowhere near what I had been working on at the gym. I tried to ignore it, and turned up the volume on my ipod and continued walking.
It finally dawned on me a few hours later that my sore neck probably had more to do with the fact I took in two concerts yesterday. Never underestimate how much swaying to the music can affect you, especially when you have chronic neck pain. Silly me.
It was worth it though.
I went to the Railway Club to take in an afternoon rockabilly jam session. The club itself isn’t much bigger than my living room, really, so it has a great atmosphere. Plus, they serve Rock Creek cider. Apparently Radiohead played there in the 90s. Can you imagine? After the Railway Club, I made my way over to another equally cozy club, the Biltmore to see Wild Flag. It was a perfect amount of energy on a rainy Saturday eve. Not to mention it was an early show, so I was home by 11.30, which suits me fine as I have to work today.
Now I must attend to some writing, both for work and play.
How are you spending today?
