I hate that expression.
Today is the culmination of the last three months of my life.
Scratch that. Today is the culmination of the last three years of my life.
I could probably further revise that statement and suggest that today is the culmination of my entire life, and that would most likely be accurate. However, since this is such an important turning point for me, to lump everything into this single moment in time would probably create too much pressure for myself, and since I woke up after a night of restless dreams at 5 am with a churning stomach, I don't think I should actively pursue anything that will create even more stress.
Chalkskin Comes Home happens today (7 pm at Skully's Music + Diner in Columbus, Ohio). The catchphrase I've been using for this show is "Everything Changes," and I simply can't think of any way of summing things up that could better capture the essence of what's going to happen. Simply put, today, everything changes.
Tonight, when I take that stage, I will be planting my flag firmly into my life, and when the lights go down and the show is over, I will have been baptized and renewed.
And that's why I'm up writing this instead of sleeping. I'm finding it impossible to rest when so much is right in front of me.
I can't wait to do this. I can't wait to share this experience with you. And I can't wait to see what happens after everything changes.
This blog is the best way to get the inside scoop on everything Chalkskin!
