They said it was over, they said we were wrong…

Ten years after

with one comment

The biggest change, after over a decade of not playing in the band, is how now everyone finds it hard to get together. When we were younger, life was simpler. For most of us, if not school, the only responsibility would be National Service. Neither requires you to do very much. You were free to do what you want after school/army. Now instead we have something called a career, or at least a semblance of one. And that doesn’t even come first. Not when you also have kids, like Robin do.

Mel recently started his own web design company; I imagine there would be a fair bit of panic around the clock. Robin is heavily involved with his church activities, over and beyond a nine-to-five schedule. Brian works in PR, which often means attending launch-type events after work. Myself I work in advertising, an industry notorious for working overtime.

So, the day is never quite done for us. Even when we leave, there is always “homework.” Hardly like how it was: ten years before.
