New Year's Eve
Wishing you all good things at the turning of the year.
May each of us share the light and light each other’s ways as we walk through the year ahead -- and may we all share in the music, as well.
Thank you for walking the music road with me, and for being part of a community of readers which circles the world, from New Zealand to Chile, from Thailand to Romania, from Hawaii to Tucson to San Marcos and Austin, to Eden Prairie, Minnesota, to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to Tallahassee, Florida, to Bloomington, Indiana, to Medford, Massachusetts, up through Halifax, Sydney, and St. John’s in the Maritimes, over to Calgary on the western plains, across the wide ocean to Stornoway in the Western Isles, Aberdeen, Dundee, and Perth in Scotland’s east, all through the central belt from Edinburgh to Glasgow, to Norway, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and over to Ireland, from Waterford to Cork to Kerry to Limerick to Galway to Sligo to Donegal to Tyrone and through Derry, Belfast, Armagh, Down, Louth, Meath, and Dublin.
You’ll know, perhaps, that here along the music road I often write reflections on creative practice with ideas for music to accompany them, as well as writing on music and musicians. At this turning of the year, here is a look back at several of my favorite reflections, and yours, from the year that’s turning.
