What pleasure it is to not be number 1.
No one is watching me, but everyone would feel the loss if I were absent.
My role is vital yet no one gives me a second thought.
Like air or water.
I have to be watchful and observant. Even though I am following, in my own way I lead.
The confidence in my notes brings confidence in their voices, and when I am unsure, they falter.
It gives me a sense of power.
Humble power, if there is such a thing.
