So this is the New Year...

Its New Year's Eve. And I don't have much to say. Its been quite a year--dare I say, the best year of my life. I love life. I love this life I live. I love this life I share.

Resolutions? Nah. I have a few goals. No resolutions. I do wanna record an EP. I've already talked to Nate about doing the cover art. We discussed some ideas last night. I've been tossing around the idea of titling it "The Monsters Aren't Under My Bed Anymore." Now I just need to finish my song selection and work on a place to record it.

I want to unplug from the consumeristic ways of life. I want to buy less and love more. I want to practice being less materialistic.

I want to continue to read lots of books and write lots of music.

I want to travel. Lots.

I want to get more tattoos. Lots.

I want to love my wife with wreckless abandon.

I want to love my family and friends well.

I want to love God with everything I have. I want to love my neighbor the same.

I want to live this life to the fullest.

Tomorrow is no different than today. Its just tomorrow. I hope I can face every day with open arms. Even on the days I struggle with why I do anything. Even on the days when the world is dark and my heart aches under the weight of it all. Even on the days when everything seems futile. Even on the days when humanity reveals the fall that we carry around in our chests.

"So this is the New Year--and I don't feel any different."
