Future tense?

So here I am in Mexico speaking only in the present tense while updating my show schedule for the coming year.

Yesterday I sent in a digital contract for a show in Denver, paid my 2011 sales tax in Illinois after speaking with a tax agent via skype, and paid a booth fee in Michigan by telephone (not to mention the meeting Kyle had, also via skype, with three people in KC about an upcoming project). Something is either so wrong or so right with this picture and I can’t quite decide which.

It is fantastic that my show schedule is coming together so nicely for this season. I do love it and have a lot to look forward to – Cherry Creek here I come! And it’s great that last year’s sales in Chicago warranted a sum transferred to the state of Illinois. But what happens to the present tense, and its reminder to be present, when the business is so easily at the fingertips?

This access is what allows for an extended trip, isn’t it? Or is it the bane of it?
