lucky me


So you know your life is pretty good if you make a Spotify playlist of music related to the music you performed the day before at church just for the sheer fun of listening to the music. If you happen to click on this play list there is extra related music on it and I accidentally put the wrong choral music on it.

So my burnout is ebbing. I feel good this morning. I do love my work, but I think I need to do some serious regeneration. However, if you checked out Craig Cramer’s interview yesterday, you will see that I share an attitude with him. He says he has never worked a day in his life. I often feel like I don’t have a job exactly. I think Craig and I share both a deep love of what we do and a surface simple enjoyment of doing it (most of the time).

Lucky me.
