Feeling good and needing to release it. I got the test pressing in for my next record yesterday and gave the project a green light. I announced pre-orders today and have nearly 40 sales already. I only pressed 100 copies! I really didn't know what to expect, I don't take this for granted. I have always been a vinyl junkie and making records has always been what I've wanted to do. I'm just thankful for this moment in time and in my life.

Maybe I don't need to but I feel compelled to publicly state that I will be spending less time watching videos online for the time being. The You Tube Vinyl Community has been a godsend to my life, finally finding a group of like-minded record nuts. It is still very vital to me. I had gotten into the habit of uploading a video almost daily. At the moment this has changed. In my mind I am in another period of transition and my focus is different as a result. My hope is to establish mechanisms for me to be compensated for my art, in other words I am back to work on a regular schedule.

2012 was quite a year for me. So many things happened the time line blurs. Looking back at quitting my career job at Community Alliance by walking out, I still feel good about it. The idea of it being a burning of a bridge that I should regret still seems like propaganda to me. Many little and not so little things I have wanted to do have happened, especially after leaving my old job. I live spartan-like but I always have. To my way of thinking, the fact that most people remain blindly focused on attaining riches after all these years of folly just seems mad. Continually, the reward for me is the doing rather than the compensation. With that said, I step into the new year with the resolve to stay focused in the here and now and savor each momment.
