Happy New Year! I know I am a couple days early, but better early than late. I don't typically make resolutions except that I plan to write more in the coming year than I did the previous year. I wrote a lot this year and am still writing. What are some of your writing resolutions or general resolutions?
I want to wish everyone a very Happy holiday Season. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Take a minute, reflect, and let your loved ones know what they mean to you.
Before Thanksgiving I was reminded by a friend about the true meaning of the holidays...kindness and goodwill toward others.

I have been editing like crazy lately. I dread it, but know it has to be done. I listen to music all the time and I listen to all kinds of music.

I have been listening to a lot of older music lately and it great to fall in love with a beat from long ago all over again. Music just seems to lift my soul.
