The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, and the Beautiful
My contract performing guitar in the band known as The Wave, a party band on a cruise ship in Hawaii, came to an end a couple of weeks ago. I'm now back on dry land in Portland, Oregon. The experience had lots of ups and downs and some drama. The most important thing, however, was that I was doing what I love to do to earn a living, and in this regard, working on the ship was a huge success. It's the reason I signed on to do this in the first place, as it's not easy to earn steady, full time income performing as a musician on land. Working there allowed me to take care of some important business: I could finally afford some much needed guitar maintenance, had a custom guitar strap made, got a few new guitar toys, and paid off a bunch of debt. Of course, I also got to see the Hawaiian Islands and be a tourist when I wasn't working . Some highlights - going zip lining on Kauai, seeing the volcano Mt. Kilauea, swimming with the dolphins, watching the sun rise over Haleakala Crater, and going to a cacao farm. And of course, the beautiful, sunny weather was nice too. I put together a slide show on Flickr of my best photos!
