But now this music thing is starting to take over my life, and my sleep, and I am getting addicted to it.
I am up and working at 8am and have been for the past hour or so. I just couldn’t sleep this morning as I had songs going through my mind which awoke me. I have been playing drums and singing with another bandmate for about two years now and we have seen a lot of progress over that time. We now have crowds of 60 or 70 people when we play and are making more money than before. We will also be doing paid gigs at the beach bars this summer and hitting the road to do other cities. HVAC repairs was my main job, as I am a certified HVAC pro, and have been for the past 15 years. But now this music thing is starting to take over my life, and my sleep, and I am getting addicted to it. I used to think about heating and cooling devices, but now my focus is shifting to songwriting and singing, and I couldn’t be happier about it. My dream is to travel around the country playing gigs in bars and clubs and making people happy with the music that we make. At 55, I thought I would be an HVAC worker for the local contractor for the rest of my life, but my oh my how life can throw you down a different path just like that. I guess time will tell how it all pans out, but so far it is going really well and in a year or two there could be some cool things going on at the local businesses with us playing music in air conditioned clubs.
