Fortune Cookie

Friday, December 10th, 2004

Music: Franz Ferdinand – 40′

Usually fortune cookies tell me nothing more than lottery numbers that are worthless, not to mention a generic ‘fortune’ that is anything but unique. Two days ago I was having lunch with Shayna and Adam at Pei Wei, cracked open my cookie, and got what I think is the most amazin fortune yet… Look around: happiness is trying to catch you. It’s going to be framed. So incredibly appropriate at this point in my life, and with what’s transpired in the last few weeks alone. My life is surreal, and for once the damn cookie is dead on. Now if I can only figure out what to do with the numbers on it the fortune: 09 12 36 39 41, 15.

South Beach

Saturday, December 4th, 2004

I’ve been to Miami before, most recently this past Septemeber… however this was my first trip into the South Beach area. Very cool. Very European. Very busy. Little shops and places to dine stretched down Lincoln Ave which has been restricted to pedestrian traffic only. Tables clustered all along the center, littered with people of all kinds, drinking, eating, and speaking in every language known to man and then a few. I suppose I could compare it most to 3rd St Promenade in Santa Monica, except this was much busier and more unique. I’ll be back.

Mmm. Perhaps not Miami, but close – Ft Lauderdale. I’ve been here since Wednesday evening, on business and visiting friends. At this point it looks like I may indeed have a serious job offer/opportunity to create something I’ve been dreaming of for years, and a dream left unfullfilled by the defunct Musicfans. Moving to south Florida isn’t exactly close to home, is quite different, but I suppose would be a new adventure in life… not to mention, a great opportunity (as I mentioned). How life so quickly changes, twists, and turns is truly not only interesting… but odd. Someone recently gave me some amazingly wise advice, ‘Jump in the river, and see where it takes you… you never know what shore you’ll land on, or what opportunities it may bring’. So many things to think about, to figure out, but for now I’m just riding the river and will deal with everything as it comes. Challenge, change, and risk are things I’ve been looking for lately. I think they may have found me.
