Daniel Powter checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@danielpowter) earlier this month with the following bulletin:
Macrobiotic diet? What is that anyway? Yesterday a friend told me he was having injections to remove all the metals from his blood stream. He tells me that it makes you exhausted but you can live to be 100 years old. I don’t know if I want to live that long. I live in a city where nothing is ever enough. Bigger house, nicer car, prettier girl, faster computer. I hired someone to wait in line for me to get the new iPhone the other day. Guess what? It’s just a phone!!! No big deal. I don’t know where I’m going with this. I really have to practice slowing my life down. Not being distracted by all the candy on the sidelines can be challenging sometimes, but I know my life runs just as well even when I don’t have the latest gadget. In LA you can phone your oven to preheat it from 80 miles away. The house might be on fire when you get home but at least you cooked a turkey. Today I will practice staying present and living in the moment. Not tomorrow, not next week…. just right now. Be well.
