In a few hours it will be 2009. For many this past year has been one trail after another and mine was no different. 2008 was a very trying year for my wife and I but we've found the way to overcome most of the trials. It was always in front of us. I thought it was my music that made me happy or just music as a whole. I looked for gratification in material items and other means. Without getting too personal (not like the personal orchestra) there was so much my wife and I had missed yet have now learned to enjoy with each other each day.
Today is our tenth year anniversary. It's snowing very hard just as the day we wed did ten years ago. The only difference is I'm on vacation where as I had to work half the day of new years eve then struggle getting home in a snow storm.
I'm looking forward to another ten, twenty, thirty or more years together. I just hope she can handle my corny jokes that long.
Happy New Year everyone! Please be safe, be wise, be good and continue to write your music!
