Darkest Portion Of The Main Update:
One last thing: below are some of many guiding words that I've gravitated to during the many dark days and hours of this project. These words were written both by powerful people I know, and by famous strangers.
Sorry to hear of your ordeals. RE: your question of your blog readers, I think my answer is kind of two-fold:
I almost always feel that when something is really calling you, then you've gotta do it. Life is too short to spend time trying to conform to someone else's standards. So, YES you are worthy of both endeavors (art/music vs. travel).
My other answer is perhaps more selfish. But since I know you for your music, I would almost rather have you in the studio making more music … and maybe even persuading Spotted Peccary or another label to release another album of yours.
But in the final analysis, this is just a 'standard' or mental construct of mine. I think you've gotta do your Summit project & related travels. You are destined… ;-)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good."
"Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success."
"Failure is often that early morning hour of darkness which precedes the dawning of the day of success."
"No is a word on your path to Yes. Don't give up too soon. Not even if well-meaning parents, relatives, friends, and colleagues tell you to get a real job. Your dreams are your real job"
"It's always too soon to quit."
"All the adversity I've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you."
