I keep on thinking about where I really want to live.

In the last six months, I’ve done more to facilitate moving than I have ever done, and yet, events made it more and more difficult to get out of London. It has its big hairy capitalist paws upon my hide, and as the economic tide starts to turn I found myself heading out at the wrong time, in the wrong boat, heading towards the wrong shore.

Now that I’ve adjusted to staying longer, I am beginning to recall my original vision for an alternative place to live. Where I was planning to move wasn’t where I was destined to live. This makes me wonder why I was prepared to travel a path which didn’t take me to where I know I want to be.

Aside from doing the work, there’s doing the work… somehow, in the middle of this burst of songwriting, living alone, I found myself returning to normal. Which means, my version of normal – passionate, idiosyncratic, focused and dedicated. So if I can bring all that to bear upon work, then why not work?

Next: comedy.
