Haiku #50 - The Conductor

A rabid windmill*
The conductor waves her arms
in case they're watching.

We're in Athens, GA tonight - another place I wish we could stay longer, based on the food, hospitality, and the nice venue.  Alas, it's a one-nighter.  

I ran most of soundcheck this afternoon, because I'm conducting the show tomorrow night.  I'm excited/nervous - it's a big show, with lots of people and machines depending on me not screwing up.  However, I humbly remind myself that, as with so many conductors before me, they aren't really paying attention most of the time!
