This year I was more mindful with my schedule, prioritizing sleep, and avoiding the impulse to agree to every possible gig that came my way. I said "no" a lot, which is hard because the Christmas season can be so lucrative to those of us in the professional music-making business.
And yet, while I said no, I still find myself up to my eyeballs in holiday music, and end of year business, and social engagements.
In other words, I'm sorry I haven't been writing daily. I'm overwhelmed. I hope to be back to regularly scheduled programming soon.
