This evening I am contemplating my final day as a 37 year old. Tomorrow I am 38.
I just finished 5 really great weeks in Maryland, performing on the weekends at Maryland Renaissance Festival. Last weekend, I performed at Texarkana Renaissance Festival. Joachim Zwick came along and added fiddling to the weekend. It was a first year festival, but people were happy and friendly and I think the whole thing was an overall success.
In the last couple of months, I have been making some serious progress in practicing. I have moments where I have to force myself to stop practicing - I am making such good progress that I want to continue, but my muscles or a forming blister is screaming STOP.
I have amazing friends and family. I am enjoying my journey as a housing thinker. I have so many goals and ideas and plans. I'm happy and I have enough money to buy food. I'm healthy and I have chosen to preserve my health rather than continue to include certain people as priorities. Life is good.
This year, 38, will be a year of growing musically with people who encourage just by committing to learn as well. I will also be entering the building scene. I am very hopeful that I will be able to purchase a lot or small piece of property and begin building. I have tons of ideas. I'm not dead-set on any one of them. I know that the search for the lot that is affordable and buildable will help decide many other directions for the project.
I am excited about this next year. I'm ready to make things happen!
