On the Road in Korea: The High Notes and Hard Truths

Updated: Nov 6, 2023

Tonight's show was a resounding success, and we've got one more concert left here in Korea. This trip has been nothing short of amazing. The music, the camaraderie, and the overall experience have been unforgettable. However, the only downside to our tour is that we haven't had much time to truly explore and immerse ourselves in the rich culture of this beautiful country.


This tour is what we call a "one-nighter" tour, where we perform in a different city every night. The routine is quite relentless: we travel to the city, deliver an electrifying performance, and are swiftly whisked away to the hotel, only to repeat the cycle the following morning.


Yet, amid the whirlwind pace of life on the road, I can't help but feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the opportunity to do what I love—playing the drums. Traveling extensively has opened my eyes to the shared human experience that transcends borders and cultures. Regardless of where you go, people yearn for similar things: a safe place to call home, quality education for their children, and above all, peace. It's disheartening to witness the shortcomings and irresponsibility of governments, often failing to act in the best interests of their citizens, as they become increasingly disconnected from the people they serve. In my ideal world, humanity would have evolved beyond violence, and conflicts would be resolved through dialogue and understanding.


I don't intend to cast a shadow of darkness or despair over this post, but I can't deny that recent world events are weighing on my mind and affecting my mental well-being. It's essential for us all to prioritize our mental health and strive to create a more peaceful and harmonious world.


So, take care, everyone. My wish for each of you is to find peace and happiness in your lives.


Later,


Darrian
