Great story. Yes, I am in a very similar situation, same age, same state with a lawn to cut. Now we have a little surprise baby to go along with our two teenagers. Early last Saturday morning I looked down from the bubble and my nine-month-old looked at me and said, for the first time, "Da Da".

I spend all week waiting to get into the bubble only to realize that I need to spend some out of it.

The Zone (or bubble) - yah, I've experienced it, though...after awhile, hopefully, you get to the point where you can drop into the zone as soon as the stage lights come on or the curtains open, you're 'there'; and then, just as quickly, you can 'turn it off' so to speak. I've experienced it, especially in some situations where there's a bunch of acts and you have 10 minutes and have to be stagehand, guitar tech, roadie all in one. It's like "walk on stage, get the two chairs setup, get the wife's mic at the right height, check-check, make sure her uke is DI'd or mic'd, set her foot stool to the right notch, go back, sit in own chair, (forget about checking tuning because it's a 12-string), pull the mic inward, spritz a little Fingerease, and then jump right in."

I mean it's not automatic. I have to just take a second, clear my mind, glance at the crib-notes on the top of the guitar for the first chord, and then "OK, now I'm a guitar player - at least for the next few minutes."

After that it's a quick tear down while the other act is setting up.

Zone-in, Zone-out. No time even for chit-chat because the stage manager's got a schedule to keep. ;)

The Zone though - it's a lotta fun to be in. Being out of the zone though - whooo-baby!

See, that's when you have to worry about 'pointy' guitars. I wonder if that's why Fenders mostly have that rounded headstock tip? ;)

I call it The Zone. It's a concept well know to us software developers, we often go there while working. I find it's much easier to get there with the guitar though. If I get in The Zone while writing code and someone interrupts me, it's very difficult to get back there, like when someone wakes you up from a nap. But with the guitar, it's almost like you throw a switch and bam, you're there.
