The Twinkling Lights of Backstage

Its been a while since I worked backstage at conferences. Common denominators: It’s COLD! It’s LOUD. It’s DARK. ┬áBut, who could pass up a last minute trip to Prague. So I hustled on over with a day’s notice, brushed up on my mirror image text reading, and jumped into my “operators” seat. Above was my view. It was a small show, not too much gear or gleaming monitor lights. But the cold loud dark was ever-present. However, that’s OK, we looked forward to the dinner that followed.
