Most of us have this little window. It's a time in our lives when we can literally do anything. As we get older the window can change. All these little things get bigger.
You get a good job?
Window gets a little smaller if you never wanna leave. Golden handcuffs?
A beautiful window opens whilst another one shrinks as you accept responsibility.
Lots of money?
Maybe you can "au pair" your responsibilities away and both windows stay open for both partners. Or perhaps you can give up the day job!
Forgiving partner who shares your dreams?
Maybe you can Love someone even more as they take the heavier load in family life for you.
You got time?
Maybe your parents are elderly or you have a disabled family member. Time, above all, is the most precious thing we have. Everybodies window gets smaller with time.
I talk about all this stuff because I'm not sure what windows are open where at the moment for a myriad of reasons. Every time I think about the next thing to do I'm really muddled in my thoughts, theres a fog over me. The only thing I know I can do is just play the songs, do the gigs and meet the people. The social media thing has become a bit too much effort for me to really put the foot down at. I think its because I can feel a change coming in how we use all these mediums and building a following that can't be found anywhere else outside of an APP feels so futile.
Anyway, if your window is open just go for it. Don't care about the No's and the Maybe's... just go for it!!
