So the end of 2011 brought me new opportunities, a big move and another chapter in the life of Wayne.
Through my search for employment I started looking into job opportunities outside of the Vancouver area and walla, here I am. Back in a city I spent 7 years in, Calgary Alberta. The new job is a step in the right direction, utilizing skills I’ve been honing for the past 12 years, making better money which will allow me to catch up on some finances, upgrade my photography gear and simply get ahead for awhile. The downside, only 2 weeks vacation for the year forcing my dreams of more extended road tripping on to the back burner. That in mind I’ve decided to really make it count and have solidified part of my summer vacation already. Check back soon for a detailed rundown on where I’m heading this summer.
For now, I’m firmly nestled in a routine, slowly getting things in order. Part of the appeal to returning here is that there seems to be a more vibrant music scene, at least for guys like me who aren’t looking to be rock stars but just want to play. I already have a band that I will be doing some weekend gigs with for fun and a little pocket money. Add to that cheaper rents, gas and general living expenses and things are looking up.
Being as I won’t be so strapped for cash I plan to get out on some weekend excursions with my camera, exploring the back roads and rural townships of Alberta. I will write often as those happen. So I guess for awhile it will be mini road trips, none the less, I will continue to explore.
