Well ... I finally made it home. I can't tell you how great it feels. I've done a lot of thinking about everything and I know that everything will work out. It's a matter of realizing what the real problems are and then dealing with them. I had an epiphany of sorts while flying home from New York to Detroit. I realize I try to take on too much on the one hand and then I second guess and don't believe in myself on the other hand. It's too much counterproductive bullshizz that wears a person down. I think a few days of further reflection will help me sort out everything and prepare me for what's coming next.
Last night was amazing ... I was fortunate enough to attend the private screening of Madonna's new documentary I'm Going to Tell You a Secret in New York City. Madonna was there, of course, along with Jonas Åkerlund (the director). I was sitting 2 seats away from Nicky Hilton ... it was insane. The movie is amazing ... wait until you see it. MTV airs the movie commercial free on Friday night at 10 PM.
BTW, meeting Madonna was truly one of the most amazing things to happen to me -- ever. She was so sweet and so warm with me ... when she realized that I, too, was from Detroit she yelled out "See? The coolest people come from Detroit!" Of course, I wanted to faint on the spot. I will never be able to thank Tim for the opportunity to meet Madonna. Robin and Angela were also integral to our meeting as well. Much love goes out to David for allowing me to attend the Motorola sponsored screening. I am very fortunate to have him as a new friend.
Things will be back to normal around here soon ... I'm going to have to find a happy medium where everything can get done, in a timely manner and will still be fun for everyone. I have a plan of action -- I haven't lost my mind -- things will only get better ... stay tuned.
Now I've got an Erik I need to go reconnect with :)
PS: True story -- Erik and I met for the first time while Madonna's song Borderline was playing in the background. It's been one of our songs ever since.
