I’m here in NYC and things are really going well with the vaccination initiative. People are out and about and gathering safely. Having gotten my second shot a month ago, I went to my first baseball game in over a year – it felt perfectly safe, outdoors, 8,000 capacity in a 40K stadium (bonus – no bathroom lines, no lines for Dippin Dots).
Anyway, the return to some approximation of normalcy made me realize just how much I’ve missed over the last year. I’ve continued to work, thankfully, but as a bachelor working 50 hours a week it was really isolating. On top of that, I’m an extrovert. Full Stop. I usually was out for coffee, sports events, small music shows (my favorite part on NYC) 3 or 4 nights a week. So this has been a tough grind.
So, I just wanted to take a moment to give thanks to John and Wai, Andrew, Katie, John Siino and the UpNxt guys, and Podfather Nate.
I’ve listened to dang near every show put out and you folks have been like getting messages from old friends. It really hit me as I’ve started to be able to safely engage with my shoot friends here in the Big Apple. I just don’t think I would have been able to be there for my clients and my family if I didn’t have this release. Sorry for rambling. I just really wanted everyone involved with this site to know that you guys matter a ton.
