Today I played music.

Sorry.

I know I'm a bad American. I should have spent money on some worthless crap. I should have been making sure that I own the newest and fanciest gadgets. I should have been making sure that I'm caught up with the latest trends, fads, and fashions. I should be trying to fit in but I know I don't. I never have. So I played music instead.....

Sorry.

I know I should've spent my day making money for some rich guy but I don't have a job. With that in mind, I suppose I should've been out there "beating the pavement" looking for work, but I didn't even put my shoes on today. I played music instead....

Sorry.

Sometimes I give in and try to be a good American. I get all worried about my financial situation and how my skills are so out of synch with the labor market. I get depressed about the failings of my artistic career. I think about how a man my age is supposed to have a wife, kids, house, big screen t.v., retirement plan, and a car. Yes sometimes I get all caught up in how far I am from the life I am supposed to be living and I'm half way to walking off the Fremont Bridge before I turn around a play music instead.

Sorry.
