2012 so far for me has made me feel like an old LP. One of those old albums that spun on the turn-table. Spinning, while allowing really great music to fill the room. It has been so far a year of traveling here and there and having a grand time teaching, sharing and meeting some great people.
This past weekend I finished up and delivered the large commission piece that has been my traveling companion these past few months - then got my taxes done - leaving just enough time to clean the studio and the surrounding digs in time for a magazine photo shoot yesterday. (more on this later on)
The studio is now so clean that I just had to stand in the middle and take a 360 set of photos. As I put things away yesterday I found bits from my teaching gig at Road to California, and the remaining materials from my two-week Hawaiian Cruise.
As all these things got set straight my mind wandered onto 'what's next' and of all the bigger picture life lessons I have picked up along the way. There is a time for enjoying the beginnings and the ends of all things, a time for clearing the decks and a time for messing everything up. With my one remaining trip this month -- this time I'm off to Mountain Home, AR, my plan is to have a wonderful time messing up the studio!!!!!
