living the dream

Many years ago I performed a piece of music, written by a good friend of mine, called "Satie Dream".

I remember liking the piece, but finding it hard to understand and learn to do. It was a very strange piece, hard to assimilate. But something about it has stayed with me.

Today I remembered something Satie said, quoted in a book of his letters. He said "It's odd. You find people in every bar willing to offer you a drink. No one ever dreams of presenting you with a sandwich."

In my Satie Dream, I present you with a sandwich.
