Life has been a crazy long and whirlwind of a time lately – Life is about experiences – about making the most of the moment, making decisions, taking risks, and benefitting or not from the outcome of what you have put your best foot forward, bet, money on…
I am ALL IN -
Seems like that is the only way to be these days. Nothing else makes sense to me. Show(s), Job(s), Art, organization, work, work, work and that’s just a day in the life. Like it or not, hustling is key, and I like it. I will survive – I appreciate all those that push the hustle along, those who hustle along with me, and otherwise put up with me. Life is crazy like that. That being said – there are some dates coming up – Keep an eye out
