Hello friends. Just thought I’d make a quick post to bring everyone up to speed on what’s going on.
Yes, the countdown clock above is right, our next show is 24 days away. If you missed our last show, Skunkie and I decided we needed a break for a bit.
This couldn’t have come at a better time, because my wife broke her leg the following Friday.
To make matters worse, she also decided that she doesn’t want to be married to me, the Tuesday after that. 12 years and 9 days were enough for her.
Yes, you heard right. This last Tuesday I was kicked out of my home and marriage.
Now before you panic, don’t worry, the show is NOT over! We’re still planning on making a comeback and being on the air again starting September 4th. We don’t intend to let a little thing like this stop us! (And yes, tears are streaming down my face as I write this.)
I’ll try to keep everyone updated as best as I can. And I’m sure Skunkie will be posting shortly too!
I’ve been around quite a while now, whether you measure time linearly or non, and I’ve finally started to figure some things out.
I’ve made things with my hands and my mind.
I’ve helped build a world, and watched it be destroyed.
I’ve made friends, and lost friends.
I’ve met Death, face to face, and came away understanding why he is.
I’ve had good times in my life, as well as bad.
I’ve known lovers, and felt hate many times.
I’ve been rich, and I’ve lived on the street without a penny to my name.
I’ve been safely protected, and hurt very badly many times.
I’ve travelled to places all over, and spent time at home.
I’ve met Presidents, and shook hands with hoboes.
I’ve eaten caviar, and known starvation first hand.
But the one thing, above all else that I’ve learned; the one lesson I can take away from all of this is…
It’s okay to grow old, but never ever grow up.
Keep your spirit of youth for as long as you can. That sense of wonder and joy in all things. That happiness that you feel on an early morning when the sun is first peeking through the fog. That anticipation when you order a footlong chili dog with mustard and slaw. That contentedness as you sit with a cat warmly rumbling on your lap. That sense of accomplishment when you build something with your own two hands.
Hold on to that feeling. Strive towards it always. That alone will serve you better during the worst moments in your life than anything else.
Tonight we will be chatting with Hal Hefner, who in his own words, says he is…
An artist by birth, a storyteller by soul, I use award winning illustration, design, writing and strategy to create digital and physical experiences. My goal is to make meaningful work that inspires others. I am the founder and creative direction behind CATMONKEY, a multimedia studio in Los Angeles, CA.
You may know him best as the creator of the CONSUME series…
So join us at 7pm Eastern time, and see what makes him tick!
