Tomorrow is Today

By Mark Antony Rossi 

I started a podcast show this new year. It’s something I wanted to do for a few years. But I put it off. Various reasons for the delay but mostly the up curve in learning new equipment and the dislike of my voice.

The former I fixed. For days I practiced setting up and recording until I became proficient and confident I could record a stand alone show and an interview show. The latter is a personal hang up. I can’t stop sounding like an Italian guy from Northeast USA. If you are honest with yourself you will discover most delays are not about disorganization but rather apprehension. The fear of the new, the fright of the unknown and fussiness of taking oneself out of a comfortable element.

Definitely guilty of all three but I still had the desire to broadcast my thoughts. And to help others with issues few seem to want to talk about: fear, depression, creativity, dreams and confidence. As always I rush to fill a void neglected by creative people too concerned with the  mirror and not enough about the people who struggle in the arts.

I don’t have a hero complex but I do have an angry disposition to situations where the world would be a better place if more folks reached out to one another. In an age of instant communication I am still shocked to learn of artists not willing to share basic market information due to fear of “competition.”

It’s one of the many crashed dreams of techno-innovators upon realizing the human condition remains essentially unchanged regardless of intelligent machine. We seem to want to remain Dumb Animals too worried about the neighbors lawn or the performance of wealthy athletes.

I am a voice not an echo for a world in need of stability and a sane place to lie one’s head. Billboards scream messages that won’t change your life. Toothpaste improves teeth; not character and life is too short to do things that don’t inspire the best in myself. And this I’m hosting a podcast called “Strength To Be Human” with the firm belief it’s another creative vehicle to carry my thoughts into your heart.
