Fire (Fi-yah)

I'm in New York City. We're here for an MTV show called "The Seven," which we filmed today in Time Square, and for Letterman and Good Morning America. It has been some time since last I've posted, and that feeling of guilt over this horrific neglect has become too loud to ignore. It isn't that I regard this blog as a chore; on the contrary, I quite enjoy it - its just finding the time. So much has been happening, and I have several partially written entries (which I still fully intend to share), and myriad more in my brain, waiting to be released to paper (or, keyboard, as it were). . .
One of my high school best friends was married November 6th, to the most perfect-for-her man, and I missed it. I was working. It feels as though I'm doing that a lot lately - missing things. It makes a person wonder about the proper way to go about living. Am I doing it wrong? Am I constantly preparing, thinking about the future, and missing what's happening presently? I routinely check myself for these ailments. I believe it is important to do what we must now, in order to do as we please later, but I sometimes wonder how much. After all, one could argue that later doesn't really exist anywhere else but in our brains, and I'm inclined to agree. Why not live exactly as we please, right now, presently? Within reason, of course - it isn't a get-out-of-jail-free-card for hard work, but it does eliminate fear as an excuse not to take action.
It is thoughts like these that have lit a fire under me with regards to my own career. And man, is it blazing hot. With the help of the talented Jon Hill, I've filmed a music video, my first one EVER (hopefully the first of many). I've written more than an album's worth of material, and am in the process of meticulously recording each song, and ruthlessly narrowing down the bunch to a solid 8 or 9 tracks, which will be released sometime in January. I have a million ideas brewing, and don't see the point in waiting any longer to make them a reality. I am electrically excited. Here's a few screen shots from the video, which I will put up sometime next month! Yay.

  2. I think each person has to find their own balance. It's obviously going to be different for each individual.

    I like how this quote from Book of Matthew talks about this issue: "therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own" (Book of Matthew 6:34).

    Unfortunately, with the modern life style, it's especially difficult NOT to worry about the future, yet that doesn't necessarily mean it's the way how things should be (in my opinion). There is a danger of missing the point of this life. But again, each individual has to find their balance in life. A balance which would make us sing along to Louis Armstrong's - What A Wonderful World.

    Good luck to you!
