Check out this original song by Nathaniel Shapiro, a talented actor and singer/songwriter I met in LA a couple of years back.
He wrote this about our mutual friend Chris, who has been a close buddy of mine since middle school. Chris took all of this location independent stuff to heart a couple of years ago and has been living and working from all around the globe ever since.
A few details may have been fabricated in this story.
Any project or system that involves people, no matter how well-intentioned, eventually loses luster once the initial excitement and momentum wears off. Everything becomes a job after long enough, no matter how infatuated you were in the beginning.
