Loa: Hearbeat

Loa: Hearbeat

I thought of Grandpa all the way through tonight’s performance…

Bloody Api.  I don’t know what to think of his… apology..? If it even was that? His Mum told him to say that, sure but it’s first time I thought he may actually be genuine.  I’m not saying we’re gonna be best friends or anything but maybe he is changing.  Better late than never I guess.  Maybe he found out about Grandpa..? I dunno. I felt a bit like a zombie tonight in the performance, banging the drum… in my mind I remembered Grandpa’s words - how he always taught us to play the drums:  “slow and steady like a heartbeat”.

Sorry…that just made me burst into tears.  Why can’t he just wake up already??!   Grandpa please, if you can hear me, I need you. We all do. Wake up.
