Well it is the New Year! Everyone starting out refreshed and with new expectations. I don't believe in resolutions. I have not for many years. It just seems like a huge build up that can go nowhere but down. The last new years resolution I kept seemed like centuries ago but it was a good one. I quit smoking! and never went back. We all tend to fall back to our old ways, so why put yourself through the letdown. I do however wish the best for everyone for the New Year! I hope to have relationships continue to grow and to make new ones.
I also want to take a moment to reflect on just how much music means to me in my life and to pay respect to some of my favorite blip stars. I'm going to mention some of you by name so I hope you don't mind. Warning you in advance. If I leave someone out please don't take it personally, as I have some memory problems and it doesn't in any way mean you are not loved and respected.
I think Jethro Tull's "Life's a long Song" says it best. We really do live a large portion of our lives through music, in many more ways than some of us realize. It truly does enrich our lives, guide our emotions, express our love, soothe our souls, and yes even guide the healing light within all of us.
@4Sins. She has been my greatest gift of "09! This special lady has touched my soul in so many ways, I cannot even begin to explain. She is an incredibly lighted being that can shine so bright! As such, she can soar to great heights and lows as I can also. I think she knows and more importantly understands me sometimes even better than I do. Thank you for being a part of my life! Awesome writer too!
@scotlandlover: I think we were touched by our mutual taste in music, but have become bonded by a mutual understanding of life, philosophy and love. I thank you for your understanding and support and hope the best for you and your family for '10
@PeractVita: An incredible friend and Gem! I feel I can talk to her about anything and always receive open honesty. That is a hard trait to find in someone. She even listens to me when I babble or rant on about nothing. She is an incredible writer also. Thank you for being my friend!
@GeriMontoya : I have to admit that when I first started talking to you, I thought you were too sweet to be real. It has taken some time to realize how real and sweet you really are. I don't deserve your love, but you have certainly helped me battle with my demons. You are incredibly lighted! She calls me her living jukebox! Thank you for showing me your light!
@loripop: Again, we were drawn by our music, but grew beyond mutual understanding of each other. You are another gifted lighted soul who has truly touched me through your blog and music. You showed me some things about myself that I needed to process. I thank you for that! Your are also an incredible writer.
@DeAnn: An incredibly talented woman! She can keep me jumping when we get our RP's going full stream! You really did an awesome thing with creating BlipIsHip and in forming a family community of music appreciation encompassing all genres of music. It has grown to become more of a place where folks like us can feel a part of a loving family. I thank you for that.
@starlingpoet: ~smiles~ You are an incredible lighted woman who has been a true friend from when we first met! I admire and respect your tenacity and dedication to your followers. You have awesome taste in music and are not afraid to share your roots.
I hope the best for you '10

I know I have forgotten some of you and will be kicking myself later when I do remember, but I will continue more in the next post.I know that you all have enriched my life in 2009 and have made me a better person. I still hate the fact that we can only give three props a day, but my props will be more thoughtful in 2010 and reflect the color and intensity that you all give off in harmony. Keep rocking and I hope to be able to measure up to all of your great qualities in 2010!
