New Year thoughts….

It's strange. A friend's wife (I'm sure she was well-meaning wink patronisingly asked me, "Just exactly how do you deal with being on the road all the time? I mean, how do you and especially your family handle it (poor luvs)? I honestly looked at her and thought "you're 'avin' a laff?" I mean, travel, performing etc. brings way more benefits than you can imagine. Sure, sometimes there's some angst, some stress or whatever but isn't that true of life in general?

I dunno. I've been doing it so long, I'm at home wherever I am. My family actually likes to get rid of me from time to time too wink But...they also get to visit cool places where I might be, as well. We have firm friends all over the world with all their different cultures and perspectives. All in all, not a bad life for my family, my friends and me. God bless music, travel and diversity! See you down the road apiece. Rock on and Happy New Year!!!

P.S. Some photos here, of Barcelona, Spain - showing the 60 years, work-in-progress, of architect Gaudí's Sagrada Família church. Also here, the amazing park he designed, decades ago, Park Güell.
