Show business is a fickle life. You’re up today, you’re down tomorrow. You’re in today, you’re out tomorrow. It’s a life of peaks and valleys. Let your valleys inspire you to get to the next peak. And if you have a lot of peaks in a row, don’t take yourself so seriously that you think you’re IT. The next valley could be just around the corner.

This is exactly how I feel right now….pretty much about everything. The funny thing is that while one aspect of my life is in a peak, another is stuck in a valley. I’m sure you’ll speculate on which part of my life is where, but I’ll tell you right now you’re wrong. You’re wrong because my evaluation changes daily. Which is probably why I’m still in transition mode in Houston. Coupled with the fact this is home, you should expect to see me here for a little longer.
My friends in Houston have always been curious about my chosen lifestyle because it’s so far off the beaten path of the majority of native Houstonians we know. I don’t expect them, you, anyone to understand. But if you’re reading this blog, I invite you to take the journey with me. Flying by the seat of my pants is not glamorous in the least. It’s a daily challenge that I enjoy most of the time.
Basically what I’m saying is that you don’t have to fully grasp why or how I do what I do. Just watch it unfold.
Well…thanks Sarah for inspiring this therapeutic stream of consciousness.
