When I decided back as a teenager that I was going to be a rock star lead guitarist, beneath the obvious perks and attractions was the idea that it would make it easier to build the kind of relationships I was looking for.
The fact that I didn’t gain that rockstar status but still managed to build the relationships I was looking for is one of those examples of getting what I need rather than what I wanted.
Today, I’ve spent 45 unplanned minutes writing on my next book and delivered art to the Alkebulan Cultural Center for next week’s art reception, so it hasn’t been a day off per se.
But along with the work, has been a some time spent just acknowledging how far I’ve come and how much I’ve turned the life around for a kid who radiated major depression by the age of eight.
