I had this conversation with my friend Samantha last night. She and I go way back. We were in a Ska band together in High School! She’s an amazing multi-instrumentalist who graduated from Berklee. She’s played on nearly every album I’ve released and toured with me. As a musical therapist she travels around to Boston hospitals and brightens the day of sick people. I don’t think she’s mediocre.
12:15 AM me: hey sam.
samantha: so, crazy thing
12:17 AM samantha: i have been frustrated with myself lately. maybe frustrated is not the word. feeling i am just kind of moving along, not going anyway in particular. and my main thought has been “man, am i just living a mediocre life?” so, that has been bugging me.
me: yeah. i feel like that too.
samantha: theeeeeeen i read your blog. thought your subject line to your blog was funny.
12:19 AM me: thanks.
i’m making lists
and posting them online.
me: so if I don’t fulfill the list…public humiliation.
