Live on WXPN! (Gene Shay's folk show) 

I had two days notice. I wanted to do it. I had asked for it. And yet, the thought of it made me want to throw up. I knew in my guts that there was only one possible answer, and that it was YES! 

I had been invited to be a guest on WXPN’s folk show. I have had the honor of being a live guest on this fabulous radio station three times before, but the last time was long ago, and live radio always feels like a trapeze with no net. It is like a mirror in the morning.
 
As I build a creative life, my intention is to be brave.  I know that it is my responsibility to continually hone my craft, and that I need to say yes to any fabulous opportunity that presents itself, even when I am afraid.  I believe that is what this road is made of.
 
I also believe in luck. Seneca, an ancient Roman philosopher, said that luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.  That rings true, and I am doing my best to be prepared.
 
I am grateful to have been a live guest on Gene Shay’s folk show (guest hosted by Chuck Elliot) and I feel proud of how it turned out.  My segment was a half hour long, and I would love for you to listen.  (Look below the picture to listen, download and share...)

 
How are you preparing to be lucky?


( I signed the wall, and later noticed that I am in the same area as my favorite Monkey! I think the Dylan one is fake...)

    Hey Denise! Holy cow, you were awesome on wxpn's folk show! I felt so proud and happy for you. You were nervous, but you went for it, and now I'm guessing you feel proud of yourself as you should. Now for how I'm preparing to be lucky. I feel like all I can do to prepare at this point is to just be the best Bryan I can be. I'm just trying to make good first impressions with my kindness, and make known of my talents and abilities. As a matter of fact, luck has already come of that as of last Friday night, and another opportunity awaits me tomorrow night. Best wishes, -Bryan

    Thanks Harry D, so appreciated. That quote is my creed these days. Sometimes it feels like I don't have any skin, but then, like a tree, it feels like I have grown another ring, and have been made stronger. Your support means a lot to me. Know you have mine too. Thanks for cheering me on!
