I am happy to say that retirement, no matter how impoverished, has led to doors opening for me in music.
The worst thing I ever did to my career was listening to my mother (RIP) and making a day job a priority. Suddenly, I was not able to play phone tag with club managers. My energies went to keeping the stays quo.
I realize, though, that I have somehow managed to learn audio production.
Here I am decades later, having just gone through 4 accidents in 4 years, and I realize that the last time someone crashed into me allowed me to upgrade to a full version of my Pro Tools recording software, with a refurb iMac, which is a perfect machine for me.
Hello, World, I am going to entertain you and advocate decency.
