A few weeks ago, Mr BG was rehearsing for a show as part of Melbourne Music Week. His band members were mulling about playing overseas together. “Not just any festival, New York would be good,” declared one band member.
As fate would have it, a couple of days later, the organisers of the NYC Popfest contacted Mr BG inviting him to play! Everyone was incredibly excited, and Mr BG started sourcing accommodation and mulling over playing in San Francisco.
This was not going to be a family trip, and I was quite happy to stay at home while Mr BG went on tour- honestly.
Then my sister-in-law Kerry offered to come up to Ballarat to look after the kids while I went with Mr BG…My initial thoughts were “I have no leave! What if something happens? This is the furthest I will have been away from them!”
But I have never been to New York, and it would be a great chance to catch up with a friend who lives there, and visit the New York Public Library, and Central Park, and the Empire State Building and go shopping…
So I am asking the universe…should I stay or should I go?
