I've finally arrived home after a wonderful two week adventure.
Let's preface this adventure with the last minute scrambling that seems to always happen to me before a show. This time of course it was compounded with the enormity of the two week trip I was about to take from Michigan to New Hampshire and then New Hampshire to Tennessee and finally home again.
I had just finished up with Northern Michigan Lamb and Wool Festival where I was greeted with a nasty cold starting just as I was packing up. That being said, the following week I was fairly useless and had a hard time getting much done until about Friday. I scrambled to meet my goal of at least 50 batts for SOAR and came up with 42 (not too shabby!)
Now that is a powerful statement.
I've been mulling it over and thinking of it often these past weeks and I will not soon forget it. My whole trip I just kept thinking, "Wow, that is EXACTLY what I'm doing RIGHT NOW!" It is an incredible thing to be even attempting to live out your dream and I hope everyone has the opportunity to do so. With a few drinks in me I've rambled on about it with great emotion too. WHY is everyone droning on from day to day hating life? Go do something about it. Do I have any money right now? Certainly not. Am I happier for it, you can bet I am, because at the end of the day, I have no regrets and I can die tomorrow knowing that I tried. How many people can say that?
