...make anything fundamentally important happen around here today, I spent some time working on what would be called a "pro bono" project if I had become a lawyer as my father wished instead of an itinerant wordsmith.
Perhaps if my efforts bear fruit I'll write about it here, even though there's a substantial risk that you'll think me even more strange than you already do.
For now, let's just say that this project involves one of my more peculiar -- and unsaleable -- talents. It also involves music, which is an essential passion for me.
If I was smart, I wouldn't even be attempting to make this project happen. It will commit me to a considerable amount of (unpaid) labor, which may or may not be rewarded by public approval.
But there are some things in life that exert an irreesitible influence on me, and this is one of them. It would be the realization of a dream that I've held close for the better part of 40 years.
With so many dreams held in abeyance -- or shattered -- right now, it behooves me to pursue those even partially under my control.
If it happens, you'll all be invited to the Grand Opening. If not, at least I tried.
