Hey Hey, It’s….
Hello Friday my old friend, come and give me one of those big bear hugs of yours!
Big week. Stuff is definitely moving around in the ether and I can’t say I am unhappy about that! Work jigsaw pieces falling into place, personal projects coming along nicely, personal life looking good. Yeah, I’ll take Friday thanks!
I am away this weekend, courtesy Skoobs Book shop and Southern Sun Hotels: A bit of an escape for a couple of days to recover and reconsider. It was a big time diverse working week: writing a few chapters in the new book for Fluid Media, leadership training with Sasol, materials development with Dev and Design, guest lecturing at the Academy of Sound Engineering. Today? I have 1 meeting! Rocking!
Of course this is always cause for reflection in my upside down world. The life of a freelancer is a weird place. Never seems to be nicely consistently OK… feast and famine, feast and famine. Repeat ad nauseum! My notion that this is somehow a reflection of my on state of mind does nothing to encourage me in facing this dilemma, but I am determined to sort it out one way or another.
It’s my birthday next week. I have no idea how I got to be this age! It’s great, I am enjoying my life like never before, but really? 41? When did that happen? The biggest joke of it all is that, thanks to Martin Schofield, guitar maestro and uber mensch, I am now finally writing songs on the guitar that WORK! Maybe that solo album will happen this lifetime after all! thanks Marty, you rock!
So I must go pack my bag now. Enjoy the weekend. We’ll talk again once I am a year older!
