don’t you think?! and i don’t just mean when you’re having fun. i mean daily, shit, hourly sometimes.
it’s all flying by so fast that it reminds me of being on tour. an old friend (and those who read this and know who i’m talking about will sigh with a bit of sadness as he’s gone now) used to say a year on the road was equivalent to a dog year. i think he meant that you’re just exposed to so much and evolving rapidly. every day is a new city, a new show, a new restaurant (in my case), and an overall brand-new experience. but each day also brings its trials… crazy traveling schedule, early radio shows after late-night concerts, bad dressing room food, limited showers, and don’t get me started on the tour bus reality.
i think that ties in a bit to this freelance world i’m in now and why i feel like time is flying by. i’ve sorta compartmentalized my life separately into work and play for so long that it’s been life changing to combine the two. the fact that my new job is in the culinary world and also creative is just… so freaking cool. but i’m not going to lie here. just like the road, it can be hard too. each day is a new “restaurant” with new recipes and new “customers” or clients. each day, inevitably, i get in the weeds. each day i’m hard on myself and wish i knew more. but each day i also learn something new, and that’s pretty priceless.
which brings me back here. time has been flying by so much that i haven’t been posting as much. sometimes i get writer’s block. sometimes i get in my head about what you guys want to read about. sometimes i wonder if anyone’s even reading.
are you? and if so… what sounds good? i’ve got some ideas but i’d like to hear from you and try and make as much happen here as possible (even if it takes me a while sometimes).
why? because life is too short, and it’s flying by.
