Its been hot today.
The club night has been going okay. I never really know what to do with my passion for music other than express it. I often wonder if my tastes will ever be reflected in other people, but I never seem to lack effort in trying to draw people into what interests me.
Work has been busier than usual, but I lose interest as creative ideas break down under restricted budgets, contracts, polotics and client imperative.
Georgia started school last week. So the kids are growing up faster than you could imagine.
I keep wanting to look for change, but I’m unsure how to find, while know that if I don’t try I will never move forward.
Its probably going to rain tomorrow.

So stuff happening all around me.
Got a new club night running. First night tomorrow.
Finally got the workshop setup as a studio space, doing a bit of stuff.
Looking forward to summer actually.

There is a bit of a friend buzz going on as I rebuild my friend list. Its very important to note that (now) I believe that everything that happens here is social and not personal.
- If you post excessive meme posts, I will unfriend you
- If you post a picture of a cat, I will unfriend you
- If you post some sort of political protest, I will .. etc
- If you like what I post, share it. Don’t repost it as your own
- If you don’t like what I post, unfriend or block me
From my end:
I am treating fbk as a professional social space. So everything I post is about me & my life as a ‘professional’ social image. Its what I want you to know about me. (ie. constructed for public consumption)
My fbk “friend” relationships is a mix of personal & personal _brands_ and Brands. While I do want to know what you are up to. I don’t want to know what feeling about everything in your newsfeed. (ie. stop sharing crap)
If you want me to care about what you are thinking. Call me or email me. Or just post direct to my timeline.
I’m probably narcissistic

So its like a week and a bit till Xmas.
Working on a big show, struggling to be motivated, just want the year to be over and holidays to be here.
Summer is being good though.

Oh Crumbs ‘ RWC is like soon.
The year has vanished into vapor. Kinda feeling worse, kinda feeling better. They days come and go with the moods. It’s pretty obviously just the residue of an all round pretty stressful year.
We had like heaps of snow, the City shut down (again) while the snow melted. I think people really appreciate any excuse to have a break at the moment. Its grim in the city as the trucks haul away building after building. The gaps get bigger, the fences stay up and the promise of a better future comes bundled in so much red tape its hard to feel anything less than grumpy.
Still, the sound system got booked for a Spring Fair, the days a getting brighter and longer. Summer holds the promise of more. Might have to throw some warehouse parties.

So everything in my life is physically fine after the earthquake, but the city is smashed around me and life is certainly a little muddled.
The biggest challenge has been mental fatigue and stress, not only my own but that of everyone around me. It has taken a very strong but subtle toll on life in a variety of ways.
Still life continues, life goes one, life is for living. So days pass, things get done, doors close and new ones open. Already I am trying to imagine today from the perspective of the future. I am trying to diminis the strain of today by perceiving how these current challenges will make me stronger for the future.

There was (another) really epic earthquake. etc
This experience puts the pressure on in ways unexpected. But the resolve is just work it out.

So the year got underway to a running start.
Established a new working relationship which launched me into right into the deep end, came up swimming. That was a good feeling.
Holidays by the beach seem far in the distance as the year stretches before me.
Still exciting things are on the horizon and the promise of hard work is hopefully a just reward.
Can’t wait and see what happens.

Even if everything falls into line there is still a lot of play in the game.
Time keeps moving. Went to the the girls kindy breakup today and realised I was looking forward to many school days, kids and singing.
