Sundays


i’ve been off the road for a week now. feel like i’m finally getting the hang of living in one place. living out of a suitcase can be tiresome, but at least one is at all times occupied with business at hand. back at home, my schedule is much more loose, but the lack of structure is hard for me to deal with. i have to make my own schedule: writing each day, exercising, blogging and twitting, always with the nagging feeling that i should be doing something that i am not doing. sundays are problematic as they are the least scheduled day of the week, and i can’t seem to simply relax and enjoy. gotta work on that. clearly. i’m not a lazy personality, but i’d like to have more access the leisurely sundays that i hear tell of. perhaps some of you folks who do freelance work have had this experience. they make their own schedules to a large extent. and though it’s nice not to have a boss, being your own boss can be wearying. but this is what i call a ‘first world’ problem: i’m not starving; i’m not persecuted; and i have clean water. gonna go drink some of that water now, and get a bite to eat. and there’s my sunday!

    “You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.” -James M. Barrie Balance is the key for me, although not easy by any means. :) Anyway, I know what ya mean.

    I have kids now and little time for myself. When I think of all those hours wasted…ugh! Before you know it your 40 years old and thinking more and more of the good old days.

    The album is being listened to on my commutes to work. Its a permanent fixture thus far in the CD player but I do pop in the ‘I Don’t Care’ CD when I’m feeling particularly indifferent to the world around me. Shoot em up, shoot em down bi-otch! Now THATS music for the soul. Thanks Mr. Roberts!

    Well, then you’ll just have to write more albums and tour more often. That should provide you the structure you’re longing for. Sound like a plan?
