Though 2020 has been a tough one for us all, I want to spend some time appreciating all the good things that happened amidst the chaos, say good-bye to all the bad things that caused the chaos, and welcome in a bright new year filled with hope, empathy, love and, of course, beautiful music.
I’m not one for new year’s resolutions. I often find that making them really just sets you up for failure. However, if you have been reading my blog you’ll know that I have committed to two things already, learning A Tune A Week for the next year, and also to stop procrastinating. So far, I’m doing pretty good on both.
To celebrate the new year coming, I’d like to give you my list of some of the things I’m grateful for and urge you to create your own.
- I’m grateful for all the musicians who continue to create and share beautiful music, despite the challenges this pandemic created.
- I’m grateful for the traditional music scene in Vermont that made me the musician I am today.
- I’m grateful for Zoom which allowed me to continue to take music classes and share music with other people from the comforts of my own home.
- I’m grateful for you, my readers who read my words and comment on my blog.
A new year is coming, let’s make it the best one yet.
Have a safe, healthy, and happy start to the new year. I hope to see you in person to share a tune some day soon. Happy New Year!
