Famous I don’t know about. It’s hard to be famous and alive. I just want to play music every day and hear someone say, ‘Thanks, that was great, here’s some money, same time tomorrow, okay?’
-Terry Pratchett, Soul Music, page 151
I think Terry has the right idea.
Some people do what they do in life because thats what they’ve come to be good at and have found a comfort zone that they don’t really have to leave to maintain.
Some people find what they like, roll with it and with a smidgeon of luck, are able to do what they love so much that their comfort zone follows them.
For me it’s not about the comfort zone. It’s about being happy. I’ve been presented with that warm blanket of security so many times that now when it’s right in front of me I completley overlook it.
Back in my first year of college, I remember making a list of everything I wanted to accomplish in my life, and all those not requiring travel…I’ve done, but now I’ve also have time to realize that the list changes. Don’t get me wrong. I will still get my zen on a Great Pyramid…I will still get my dance on the Great Wall…
…now it’s getting time to add to the list… because the list needs to be about experiencing a smile in a million different places or scenarios.
The list really is about being happy.
…yeah…not much of a rant eh?
…the book is on that list too…halfway done…only took a few years right?
