Seren, are you working on anything new these days?
Well, thanks for the compliments, Seren & Bill!
Bill, you really thought my pic was Photoshopped? Awesome!!!
OK, back to shoveling a gigantic pile of rock back into my pond now. (Oh, and if you think my arms look buff, you should see my QUADS)...
Seren, you lucky!!!
I have to work really hard, but I'm getting into pretty good shape now & I'm pretty happy with how things are looking these days.
It's not just about moving around, and slowly burning calories. It's also about working hard enough to build or at least maintain muscle mass as we age. Without strength work, we gradually lose more and more muscle as we age. That's why even when a person maintains a steady weight, say between age 25 and 45, they will end up looking much worse than they started. Maybe at age 25 they had decent muscle ton and 18% body fat, then at age 45 they've lost half their muscle and they're at 30% body fat despite weighing the same amount... and they have a saggy, flabby body.
I think if you start as an artist, you could not expect anything in turn, you ask how the artist is going to survive on music, I think maybe you have wrong expectations, to survive on music is only a dream, and a reality for a very few. To be a musician is not a work, it is not a way to make money as I see it. If you need to pay the bills and get food on the table and still want to be and free/independent music you should take some part time job, maybe a few days each month. Or come up with some other idea.
If you accept to live in an lower living standard you really do not need an full time job, a full time job would of course be an total disaster for every creative musician, freedom I think is an important element for every musician, as I have said before, it is an lifestyle.
