How fleeting is fame. On Friday I was the rising star of the blogosphere, having been Freshly Pressed by the folks at WordPress and watching my page views soar into the heavens. By Saturday afternoon I was back to work in La Grange and Smithville scouting locations for next Saturday’s HANPA (Houston Audubon Nature Photography Association) workshop. Sunday morning was spent paying the bills and seeing if I could use some creative accounting to stretch my cash flow once again. And by Sunday night I was furiously working to put together a proof portfolio for a prospective commercial client.
Somehow, this all seemed a lot easier in my youth. Working seven days a week seemed simple back then, when the creative juices flowed through much younger veins. When five or six hours of sleep and a cup of hot coffee was all that was needed to jump start things on a Monday morning. I think Toby Keith’s latest song hits the nail square on the head.
“I ain’t as good as I once was, but I’m good once as I ever was.”
Happy Monday Folks!
