What's the Big Picture?

Michael Manicotti at Monahans Sandhills State Park

I don't think I'm going to have enough time to do everything I want in my lifetime.

So what's important? Honestly? Nothing. None of it is really important. At the end of the day it's all just people and events squished into a timeline. You can bring meaning to anything you want. That's the power of the brand.

I like to write, I know that.

I produce music but even that seems like work now, especially producing my back catalog. I mean, I'll do it because it needs to get out there so I can move on to something else, but I'd still rather be chilling out in my camper somewhere in the desert just soaking it all in.

So what's the big picture? I don't know.

I'm just going to keep creating shit and see what happens. The cool thing is that I am such a content beast that I have already been able to identify some potential roads to turn some of my art into product.

The numbers can tell you a lot. It gives you a road map and you really don't know shit until you look at those. We all have an idea of what we think will sell, but you don't really know until you put it out there.

My podcasts on dating for example receive a lot of hits. That means I can create a product. So maybe now I will create a masters class download so people who want to inquire further can do so.

It would be funny if I became a dating expert guru or whatnot. Out of all the shit worthy of praise I have done, it would be funny if that took off.

I have a general idea of what's going to take off. I like creating it all though. It makes me feel accomplished.

So, for the time being, that's the plan. To keep creating.

Hopefully I can start playing my guitar again because recently I haven't really been doing that, mostly because my soul is telling me to do this.

Well, that's all I have for now. Just thought I would hash out those few thoughts that I had.

PS - I would like to go to Big Bend National Park. Maybe I'll do that next week.
