Hanging out with these two for 5 days in Toronto and the guys in Belfast beforehand was as inspiring as it was intimidating. Watching the workflow and absorbing the knowledge of others makes you realise you know everything and nothing at the same time.
The most important thing though was experiencing the benefit of being with other people who do what you do, understand it and have similar ways of being. Being part of a crew.
I’d not appreciated it before, always feeling like an outsider never really in the group, but not really out either. On the fringes if you will. How I see my place in life really.
Realising and writing this I see that I actually already have these small crews: my band, my work and my homelife. I’d just not had one yet with the whole online/social media thing.
Say what you want about Instagram and it being the source of all millennial anxiety and depression but it is also the provider of connection and friendships, bringing together outsiders and people who should be hanging out but never would have got the chance before the internet.
Go create your crew.
