Deeper and Deeper, I’ll dig my hole.Deeper and Deeper, till I strike gold…
From Sticking to My Guns by Kieran Wicks
ETERNAL QUESTIONS AND CONSIDERATIONSPeople say I think too much, I’m starting to think they’re right…
- What NOW!?!?
- What do I do next?
- How do I dig myself out of this hole?
- How do you successfully reinvent yourself and your business model in an age of uncertainty?
- How do you do this whilst staying true to yourself and your "master-plan", and making it all appear natural and with an air of grace?
- What’s your contingency?
- How do you activate it?
- What’s your growth plan?
- Does it account for the realities of the resources available to you, your skillset, and where your career is at on the totem pole?

- How do you define success?
- What is your Rubicon? “Your Point of No Return”

“I don’t do things in halves! I’ve been immersed in the LIVING ART LIFESTYLE my entire life. I live and breath art in all of its forms, it’s engrained into my DNA and is apparent in all of my daily endeavors. It’s simply who I am.
Pre-Covid I had spent the previous 6+years traversing Australia performing hundreds of shows across the country as a successful touring musician, whilst simultaneously developing a vast catalogue of interviews, images and videos in the production of my forthcoming docuseries One Town at a Time, which chronicles my journeys.
In the six months leading up to the lockdown, between musical jaunts along the Great Ocean Road and wider Victoria, I was in the midst of recording my third and most powerful album to date in Melbourne. And then… with a calendar full of shows booked from the bottom to the top of Australia, the world changed"

As a creative, I crossed my Rubicon many moons ago.
No retreat, no surrender, there is no turning back!
"According to Suetonius, Caesar uttered the famous phrase alea iacta est ("the die is cast"). The phrase "crossing the Rubicon" has survived to refer to any individual or group committing itself irrevocably to a risky or revolutionary course of action".

X MARKS THE SPOT ON THE COSMIC MAP, BUT WHAT DOES X EQUAL?
Smitten to stupefying distraction by my highschool crush in math class, Algebra was never going to be my strong suit.
The destination hasn’t changed, you just have to go a different way.
If you keep your intentions pure and empathy front of mind, it becomes much easier to navigate the crossroads' when the time looms that fate recalculates a dimensional detour into your GPS.
It’s up to you to align a path of least resistance.
"Take the long way round, the high road is where it’s found”
From "Crossroads" by Kieran Wicks
Kieran Wicks- "Crossroads" from Infinite Sky on Vimeo.
Go with the cosmic flow.
Take the detour.
It’s all new terrain, regardless of your path.
You have never been to your destination, but you’ve heard it’s nice.
You’ve seen the pictures, heard the stories, and can imagine all things you want to see and do when you get there.
But you haven’t actually been there.
You haven’t traversed the trails and tributaries, nor survived the trials and tribulations.
You haven’t witnessed what it takes to cross that river or climb that mountain range.
You haven’t worn the soles of your shoes bare from walking the roads it takes to get there.
Your Lucky Day is a song about the "The Devils Sales Pitch for your soul"
HAVE I GOT A DEAL FOR YOU!
What will you do when you meet the devil at the crossroads?
Don’t stop now!
Don’t accept pennies on the dollar and forge an ill-fated Faustian Bargain, as those members of the fated 27 Club before you will attest.
The erudite Faust is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, which leads him to make a pact with the Devil at a crossroads, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary artistic, cinematic and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. "Faust" and the adjective "Faustian" imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a limited term.
