Some Personal Stuff

For those of you that actually read this blog, thank you. And I think I owe you all an explanation.

2018, personally, has been a trying year. A couple of major life events. Some heartache and loss. I won't burden you with the details.

Due to life stuff happening, I have not been able to write as much as I would have liked. Rest assured that I have been listening to music, just not writing.

Music is healing. Music is cathartic. Music is always there when you need it. Sometimes I didn't feel like writing, but I was always listening.

I will do a year end list early after the new year. In the past I've only considered albums I've written about. This year, there is so much good stuff that I never got around to writing about, I'm not following that rule.

I also will not do it typical list style; it will come in the form as a narrative.

2018 was a good year for music. I thank you all for following along and wish I had done more writing.

Here's to a fantastic 2019.


  1. I understand and identify. I float in and out of writing, and I always feel better when I make time for it, but life gets in the way sometimes. I am definitely going to try to listen to more new stuff this year! My job is so stressful sometimes, that I get all to comfortable mindlessly scrolling instead of doing something creative or making myself focus on an album. No good! Here's to a better 2019 for you! I always enjoy reading your posts and tweets!

    1. Obviously, my writing is rusty... *all TOO comfortable*
