I am just plugging along today with my work here in the office, wondering where my life is going to take me over the next year. Part of me wants to run back to the safety of my hometown and be around my friends and family while they are still here. I left my flock about eight years ago after a breakup and have been living away from them ever since. I go home to visit a couple times a year, but it isn’t the same as living there, so I need to decide if I’ll keep living abroad. Air conditioning filter sales is what I do here, along with chasing my musical dream of playing in a band, but I really miss my family back home and am thinking about maybe moving back at the end of this year. But the local contractor back home may not have to work for me anymore as he is going to be retiring soon with his HVAC company. I’m sure I could find some work back home but I am afraid I may never connect with another musician the way I am here in Europe. I will let time tell me the solution while I keep working for the HVAC business here in town and play my music with my bandmate. I will appreciate living here knowing that it may only be a little while longer before I head back home to be around my family and friends again. I could do some electric heating system repairs back home for this new contractor I guess.
