Funniest thing I’d find after leaving my job was that people started asking me what I did all day. Almost as if to question our very existence or the right to follow our wildest, wild dreams. And I wanna fly – that ain’t no secret in these parts!
The best questions I’d get asked were – Are you still painting? followed by Are you looking for another job? – you should keep your bar managers licence you know, just in case…
In case what – That I’d suddenly wake up one day and stop being an artist – as if.
In case what – That I should have a back up plan – in case my dreams didn’t pan out.
In case what – yeah – In case what?
No more excuses – justifications – down playing these crazy dreams – No more.
It’s funny you know – when they’re talking the small talk – I’m thinking New York. Not that I’m gonna tell them that mind you – maybe I’ll send a postcard when I get there… till then – Dream Big – Dream Bigger – Dream On…
