Kick back, relax, and smell the coffee.
I'm the type of person who doesn't sweat the small stuff.
And it's all small stuff!
I enjoy the simple things that too many folks seem to walk right past now a days. You have to be able to see what's right under your feet, take a whiff of the fresh air, check out a babbling brook or lay on the ground and look up at a tree or a cloud.
There's an old Native American saying: "Only the rocks live forever". So stop, look around and enjoy life while you can.
I live in Connecticut and I'm a big Philadelphia Flyers fan, hence the monicker I use (No, I'm not a con on the fly, though I've probably worked with a few, LOL).
I played the skins for about 12 years in an assortment of different bands, then converted over to the technical end starting as a roadie, lighting tech, soundman and ended my musical career as a road manager. I've had the fortune of working with and meeting some great artists over the years and good people who work behind the scenes. Special recognition to Rick Kissenger (Scorpion), Kenny Jeremiah (Soul Survivors), and Shirley Goodman (Shirley & Lee, Shirley & Company),a man who was a best friend and guitar whiz, a man who was like a brother, and the sweetest lady I ever met (may she rest in peace).
I now protect the earth, sky, ocean and oilpaint for a living.
