i guess there always comes a time when you have to decide whether you are going to write about how great everything is or how things really are. the thing is that things are not usually great with out some hiccups or horrible with out some bright spots. the last month has been quite a lot of both. it’s been awesome seeing friends prepare to exhibit, to see them succeed and move onto the next step in their careers. it definitely makes me very excited for the next move i’ll make and for my upcoming show but it’s hard as well to see folks moving on. it occured to me while wondering the streets of bowling green, ohio with j and s that this last year has definitely been a hey day. these are the times you remember. i’ve always felt confident that if you go after what you want the universe (or whatever) will sweep in and provide support, whether that means money,friends or public transportation. and it certainly has. what a great year with a great studio, great friends and roommates, great jobs, the list could go on and on. great and comfortable. then enter the last week. studio is full of new people, everything at work is different and of course two of my favorite folks are gone. thank goodness for j and n.p. and m and v. it’s funny though because everyone is going through these changes alongside me but for some reason i’m balking. i just don’t want to move right along to the next step. i feel grumpy about music in the studio and and nervous about sharing the bathroom with some one new and possible less tolerant than s and i feel like i want to escape. why the heck am i so full of all these super useful and rational feelings?
oh yeah! i hate change. i crave it but when it’s happening i hate it. for awhile. and then i get over it. at least i think i do. and i better get over it soon because i have about 700 things to do in the next month. so check back in a month. let’s see if the brattiness gets the best of me.
