The future’s not what it used to be

It’s true. The future, although not actually here yet, is not what it used to be.

I thought I knew what lay ahead. I really did. But I was wrong.

The shock of that was difficult to cope with for a really long time. The sudden uncertainty threw me violently off kilter and I lived each day on what felt like shifting sand.

The ground doesn’t necessarily feel more solid now. I’ve just learned to live with the ebb and flow of those sand drifts. And, I’ve come to love them.

If the future is anything like the present it will be filled with discovery, delight, expression, passion and celebration. Now seems so awesome in fact that I called up my good friend Laura Cioccia and asked her to take some photos of me. I needed some up-to-date publicity shots anyway, but I also wanted to freeze this moment in time. This moment when I’m just ….. so fucking happy.

After a few pretty awful years, life is being uncharacteristically kind to me and I’m not questioning it for a second.

I’m just saying thank you very much. I’ll take it.
