I have not listened to any good music in a while. Life is too busy to sit down and shuffle through the latest and not so greatest or revisit the gems of the past.
A beautiful daughter is growing quickly. A business is building steam like a well manned locomotive. Yet here I am at my favorite time of the day, when all are asleep. I want to sing and dance in the wee hours.
My daughter is such a blast to sing and dance with. Not even two and she is belting out the kids songs and I get her going with all of my yester-year favorites. Even though she may be raised in a time of shunned talent for the sake of glamour and sex, she can still be influenced with the good stuff. Have to keep hope that the pulse of good original music has not flat-lined.
The business is growing quickly. I am not apt to give any specifics and I am not sure if I have on here or not. I have a small group of employees working for me but as can be expected they will never be as good as the original. Some things you cannot teach and it did not matter if I worked for someone else or doing my own business, I take care of my customers by going above and beyond expectations.
There is a nervousness floating off into the uncharted territories of business ownership. When you have a great product that sharply undercuts your competition, it is only time before the bullseye is on your back.
How awesome is it to go from riding a bicycle to a crappy call center job to two years later owning a business with a fleet of brand new vehicles and several employees? It was the perfect storm I always felt was coming and we are surfing those waves!
What else is new? My wife and I are getting the keys to our first house tomorrow. We closed the business down for a few days while we transfer our goods over. Looking forward to the added space and pushing of neighbors to greater distance.
Life has been a wild ride. From how much trouble I used to get into to this. The wife is such a big part of this. Life has not given a support system as all those held dear have been religiously stripped of brightness during my days. The wife has brought that back.
I don't think she knows it, though. Had it not been for her solidarity and wanting of children we would both still be unguided adults cruising towards a time of no legacy. Forever grateful that she planted the seed as it changed everything. We got ourselves a little badass out of the situation.
Mona has super powers. Notice this "Thunderclap" blowing her hair back!
Such an awesome kid, even if she is early to the "terrible two's".
Other going-on's would be my joining the ranks of proper motorcycle ownership again. Bought a fast bike again which I have been avoiding because of a lack of self control. It feels good to have adrenaline again. Not the same as when I was younger and pumped full of potent emotions but I will take what I can get.
As a matter of fact I feel almost sociopathic and void of emotion these days. I miss the younger days when so many passions and vigorous emotions flowed like lava eruptions. At the same token it is nice to be chill. Certainly less trouble comes with age. I do miss "feeling" though.
The only reason I got to typing tonight is music. That and not having to stay up late and get up early for work has conspired for some key slapping.
Mona will be two years old soon and I want to make a video for her second birthday. I may put it up here. Been seriously slacking on writing anything. My vocabulary feels dissolved and any creativity has dried up. Truly unfortunate.
My memories have been disappearing, too. Cleaning out the old and ushering in the new. I can't wait to hear music later on that reminds me of Mona's early days. It will be the best!
Some pics of recent goings on:
Until the next time. Hope life finds you well.
