A New Year, Where Are We Going?

A new year is here. I have been lax in writing the past few months as things got busy. Plus, my dysthymia was kicking me pretty good in November and into December while I worked on NaNoWriMo.  I did complete NaNoWriMo. The streak in still alive in meeting the 50,000-word goal in 30 days.  I have decided that once I hit 1 million words, I'll stop doing it. 

I was going through my music collection and found a Hal Ketcham CD.  When I worked as a radio announcer for a country music station fresh out of college, I learned about him. I put the CD on and for whatever reason when "Stay Forever" came on I thought of myself when I was in college and then thought of Sean. It's an odd association because nothing from my days playing country music after college was ever linked to anyone I went to college with.  

If anything, when it comes to song association, especially with Sean, it's a Pink Floyd song that admittedly, was not his song or mine during our college years. The association came after college, it came after I learned of his passing. When I hear "Wish You Were Here", I think of Sean. The think is, Pink Floyd was not a band he'd listen to. They were more in my wheelhouse than his.  

My music collection has been slowly growing.  I hope that I expand it and find new artists this coming year. Last year, I didn't buy a whole lot.  As the new year is here, I don't know what lies ahead.  I didn't make any resolutions. I think that was smart on my part after listening to my friends say they bought a $900/year gym membership and have gone only once.  Yikes!

Anyway, I'm glad I didn't make a resolution like that even though I could use a visit to the gym. I'll wait for the nice weather instead.

Take care everyone.  Enjoy, Pink Floyd, well technically, David Gilmour. 

Rock on!
