I remember just a short time ago things used to be so hard to do. Everything was a struggle, or required some massive plan and a good amount of wishful thinking, only to end up not much farther than where I began.
Things are so completely different these days. I’m not sure when it happened. Success is just much easier now. And the result is simply a tidal wave of successful intentions. To the point that I am now on the opposite end of the spectrum. No puffery to make myself feel more productive, or frustrating dead ends and obstacles to explain. Its momentum building upon momentum. Building so fast that I hardly have time to think. Somewhere between the 300+ emails a week, hundreds of phone calls a day and countless meetings – hand shakes and smiles, press releases and interviews – all while nursing a broken heart – I hadnt realized just how much my life has changed.
I’ve started making top ten lists every time I get a little down. Top ten moments as a comic book artists, Top ten moments in Love, and today… my top ten “firsts” of 2008. Many of those coming in just the last week. When life is flying past me, I sometimes forget to pay attention… till a moment grabs me by the shirt and says “Come on kid! Step on and enjoy the ride!” Like today… sitting in the waiting room, waiting to go on TV. Or being led into the eerie silence of a sound stage as they whisper instructions to me. And I’m thinking, “Wow… how the hell did I get here?” and “How far will this go?” The answer is, I have no idea. But judging by the speed and power that these intentions are coming to fruition, chances are, in time, I will be going all the way.
