2007: Marriage (third time’s a charm); Money (I really wish I could say that I’m not materialistic, but the more money I make, the more materialism slips back into my life); Music (Roger Waters was the highlight, but 3/Porcupine Tree, Satellite Party [even without the recently departed Nuno Bettencourt], Tool, Modest Mouse, and Ween were all great shows). Another job ends (Gandalf/Estrada), and a return to full-time bartending. Sigh. Lots of traveling about the southeast. A billion statues for Cynthia. HD DVD (thanks, Wade!). Cello (thanks, Mom and Dad!). Beginning and ending the year playing and drinking with the Exhibit(s).
2008: Less wasting time trying to assert control over things I have none over, and more on the things I do. Every day: a little reading, a little writing, a little cleaning. Less often but regularly: music practice, music writing, work. Everything a little bigger and a little better than last year, except for those things that get a little smaller or (hopefully) rarer.
Every step counts when trying to keep moving forward.
