Had such a blast playing music last night an amazing show with ODELL. That band is going places, I hope they don’t forget about me.
Had a great recording session a few days ago with John Paul Norris and Matt Camgros for my record ‘Art Officially Natural’. The record is literally coming alive with great musicians, and it’s an exciting process to say the least.
On this New Years day, I am feeling so grateful for everything, for being alive, for having good health and great friends, and for my family. So blessed to wake up everyday and receive the gift of each breath. The journey of life thus far has shown me that no matter what happens, we are always whole inside, somewhere deep, and we are always connected to everyone and everything. Our lives are woven with the lives of our friends, family, relationships, partners, and people we work with, the whole world is weaving a great tapestry together, and we all belong and have our place in it.
Now to continue working on the record and visit a bit more with friends and family in NorCal. Sorry if I missed you this time around.
Then I’ll be heading to LA, where I will once again enter the fire of the city, where everyday is an inspiration to reach higher musically and work with the best around. Living in LA and studying at USC has already been incredibly rewarding, and I always look forward to waking up the next day to continue sharpening my craft.
Each day is a journey that eventually takes us up a mountain, each year is a different mountain that we climb, and then can overlook the other years and mountains, all connected through the pathways we make each day and through our relationships we build with others. Happy new year all, peace and love.
