How is it Christmas already? The older I get, the more quickly the time passes. I supposed being wrapped up with all sorts of Busyness and Important things makes one miss the peace and wonder of the season. I could take this moment to list many things I'm grateful for this year, and announce my goals for next year, but I generally hold those personal things closer to the chest than most. But suffice it to say, I have grown more as a person in the last year than I have in a long time. I've been stretched, and am still learning discipline and all of those things. Am I slowly becoming an adult? I'm still not sure what the markers of adulthood include. I did buy a new mattress this year, and that seemed like a big deal. No? I do think this season makes one stop and think not just about what output they are producing, and really think about what lasting impact and legacy they will leave. I'm talking like the end is near. I guess that makes me an adult- to think about such things and not the frivolity of youth. Maybe my lesson this year is to find that frivolity and joy a little more in every day. Instead of pondering the finality I can celebrate the now- be more consciously attached to every precious moment of life. I've been a little bit insular lately and self-protective, but I also want to make sure next year I communicate more with you. I want you to know more about my life and music and journey and hopefully instill a little positivity into your days and weeks and years.
Damn. I just did what I said I wouldn't do. Well, maybe I'm willing to not play things as close to the chest as I thought. Merry Christmas, and here's to a bright, bold and beautiful 2015.
