Onwards and Upwards

January 4, 2015

So it is the first Sunday morning of 2015, and I am feeling suitably thoughtful with black coffee, Tim Buckley, and Duke Ellington keeping me company. There are a multitude of things that I am grateful for when reflect back on 2014, many of which I would not have foreseen this time a year ago. So many wonderful memories of living in London, adventures across California, and jaunts to Paris come to mind, shared with both old friends and new. Drives through the desert, parties in Pigalle, mind-melting live shows, and so many great conversations filled the year. As with everything, there were hard times too, but I’ve been thinking a lot about how heartbreak in it’s various forms really does make the honey of life sweeter. I believe that humans are remarkably resilient creatures, and that staying open to the world and love throughout life is a pretty strong and beautiful way to live. Anyway, here are some nice pictures …

Looking forward, 2015 feels like a clear blank canvas to have some fun and get creative with. I am already two music interviews deep for Wax Poetics, and look forward to seeing my first academic work published this Spring for the Cambridge University Press. Onwards and upwards!
