Writing on Air

Writing on Air by Jim Paredes


Bedroom No.8!

Posted on May 12, 2004 by jimparedes

I’m on my 8th room since I left Manila last April 12. Living out of a suitcase used to be more fun when I was younger. As the days wear on, I realize that a) I brought more clothes than I should have though I thought I packed light b) I did not bring all the right ones. Thank God I can buy stuff along the way.

APO’s shows have been a lot of fun. Cincinnati and Toronto gave us standing ovations, but in Orlando, we got 4 standing ovations throughout the show! Something to cheer up three old men! ha ha ha! After thirty five years, it’s hard to believe but Danny, Boboy and I still get an absolute kick doing what we do. Showtime is playtime! And playtime means creativity and being child-like (and yes, childish too! ha ha.

Everyday is an endless stream of shaking hands, flashbulbs, pictures, autographs, talk about the Philippines, lunches, dinners, store visits, etc.. Believe it or not, I am NOT complaining. I actually enjoy meeting our kababayans and learning about their stories in America. Also, because of my previous postings about my Significant Other’s battle with breast cancer, I’ve been meeting a lot of women who are going or have gone through the same thing. I feel a kinship with them.

It’s three days before our Chicago show. The next day we leave for Virginia and then do a concert there on Sunday. Then it’s California for two weekends (3 concerts). Then it’s back to Florida for three more. Then NYC, then Texas. The home!

Then I can sleep on my 17th bed!!!

PS. Saw Cirque Du Soleil’s show entitled La Nouba! It is THE BEST show I have ever seen. Beyond words. A must-see! More on this next time.
