Wikipedia discribes the Fortress of Solitude as:
A place of solace and occasional headquarters for Superman, the fortress is typically depicted as being in frozen tundra, away from civilization.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortress_of_Solitude
Its been over a month now of Shelter in Place/Safer at Home, here in California. Over the last few weeks, quite a bit has happened!
Millions have lost their jobs, thousands of shows and events have been canceled including SXSW. Thousands have died including some close family members, and life still moves on. Like a never-ceasing metronome, time keeps ticking on.
That got me to thinking, is the best part of my life behind me?
I have been working since I was 13, but I didn’t get a “real job” until I was about 23.
During that time, I have traveled extensively, worked with amazing people, and created some amazing projects & events. My life now is far more subdued, and I feel like I’m missing something. I don’t know if its the beginning of midlife crisis or just a longing to do something bigger.
I look back fondly upon the things I have accomplished and wonder will I reach those amazing heights again?
At times I look up the accomplishments of others, where they are, what they are doing, where they are heading. It is amazing to see the growth of my friends and loved ones. It gives me hope!
Anyways, I hope you are all doing well. I hope you have a Fortress of Solitude that you can retreat to and find peace and safety.
Good luck, God bless & peace be with you.
