Gerald, I finally went back and found your original question.

I perform every time I WANT to perform.  I feel very content with 
where I am.  This weekend, at Three Kings, Kat and I found that there 
was a challenge finding a fire.  We finally did find one and spent a 
long time singing there.  It didn't turn into a large circle by any 
means, but the people whose fire it was were VERY appreciative that 
we showed up.  Sometimes I like to be at a Bard's Fire, and other 
times I need to share my gift with those who will never think to seek 
us out.  Sometimes I want a circle, and sometimes I want to 
fire-walk.  Three Kings was a true success for me.

Besides, I cannot tell you how many times I have heard someone say to 
a bard that he or she awoke the dream for that person like few had 
done before.  We cannot do that if we don't take it to them sometimes.

Thanks for this question and all it has inspired,
