anticipation

1965 pro football “Bonus Baby” Joe Willie Namath eventually contracted a ghost-written autobiography titled, “I Can’t Wait Until Tomorrow … ‘Cause I Get Better-Looking Every Day,”which speaks to my overall application of the noun, ANTICIPATION.

Much more than the Carly Simon hit, or the Heinz  commercial viewed by millions of  sitcom watchers in the ’70s, for me, anticipation is that ephemeral tingling one skates on before  sleep, the precipice of unbound joy, Christmas eve, first sex.

Looking forward to local music events in early 2017, I cannot stand the fright that I might experience in the possibility of missing Jay Farrar’s only  Ohio appearance, Thursday, April 13 at 31 West in Newark.

Tuesday, March 7, on the 73rd anniversary of the birth of Townes Van Zandt, Eric Nassau will assemble scores of Columbus musicians for TVZ-11, the tribute show, again at Dick’s Den (Why Not) and again as a fund raising benefit concert for WCBE 90.5 FM Columbus NPR.

Finally, continuing to jog through TimFerriss’ new compendium of positive tactics, routines and performance-habits, TOOLS OF TITANS, my springboard into 2017. tim-ferriss-tools
