Praise the Lord that I made it another year :)
Exactly one year ago, I posted a blog update. Part of it read:
"Knowing myself, I can see myself looking back at this post as 2017 rolls around. Will I have come leaps and strides from when I made this post? Will I have begun to grow into the artist that I believe I could be? In roughly 365 days I could either be viewing this post as a depressant (due to my comfortability and lack of effort over the upcoming year), or I could be viewing it saying, "That.....that is where I began. That is where it all started."
I could never thank the Lord enough for what he for me this year.
1.) This time last year I hadn't even thought of using a loop pedal
2.) This time last year I hadn't thought of the name "Dovi J"
3.) This time last year I was trying to graduate college
4.) I had no clue that I would be moving to New York City
5.) I had no clue that I would have business cards
The list can go on and on, but I would just start talking in circles. I'm blessed to have met all of my co-workers. I'm blessed to have made a musician friend here. I'm blessed to be in a financial state where I can load up on Cliff Bars weekly and pass them off to the homeless.
Who knows what 2017 will hold? As long as my God is the pilot, it will be something beautiful.
