Dear 2020, please go forth and fornicate with thyself. In the meantime, how about another blog on the internet?
Let’s do this.
Small accomplishments need to be celebrated. Just getting out of bed can be truly liberating. Hell, if you can make the bed after achieving morning consciousness, you deserve a nice coffee. I prefer to grind the beans for even further satisfaction. I’m serious. Celebrate the small stuff.
Savor your coffee or drink of choice. Take a picture of the food you are able to eat… I spent an hour today walking in a park in Las Vegas, with several human beings who were quite possibly wondering about their next meal.
I’ve wanted to start blogging for a long time. I’ve studied countless greats and have mentioned it to friends and family too many times to count. Earlier this year my buddy Mundo told me I had mentioned it (The Blog) to him in 2016. Oh well, it’s never too late to start! Thanks Mundo. I needed that.
This is my first post. I want to keep it brief to keep you coming back. I want to write about music, technology and intentionality. I want to tell you about people I admire doing really cool things - in a format that’s away from the social media noise. The past few years I’ve given a lot of thought to the world of minimalism and a “clearer” path to intentionality. It’s not easy to downsize or simplify, but it always feels better to get to the essentials.
I also want to write about music. Music I love. Music you might someday love. And, how technology helps (and hurts) the war to create it. I usually like computers and my vast collection of “devices” to make things work together. I want to share some information that has helped me and will hopefully help you too.
I also need to acknowledge some really important people in my life. Mom and Dad, thanks for having me! Dena, you have supported me for a long time - talking about this endeavor. Thank you! My dear sisters, family and wonderful friends across the globe. Thank you for making me a better person. A better communicator. A better musician.
These are bizarre times. I’m grateful for the good years and look forward to seeing progress in our world. Celebrate the small stuff and move on the best way you can. I hope you find value in my new blog.
