A fine start

Happy New Year to those of you who read this blog; in general, a wish of peace, happiness and love to my family and friends - I hope this year gives joy to those in need.  Many have said 2013 was a bad year for them; it had its ups and downs for me - most notably, Liz' two major surgeries and the loss of Midnight.  But it also had its upsides - the Big Star show at Central Park; the movie premiere and parties; seeing The Bongos at the Living Room and, of course, the night Maxwell's closed.  Plus, I was able to take my writing to a far more elevated level by joining both Popdose and Rock NYC Live & Recorded.  Not to mention the move to the new apartment and having baby Roxy join the family.  So I've had some good moments as well.

This year started on the right notes; some nice wines, breads and cheeses; a good movie and the quiet of our apartment after a midnight toast of prosecco.  Enjoying the first coffee of the year and just bought my three-day ticket for this year's Beatlefest, since it's the 50th anniversary of their arrival in the United States.  It's a once-in-my-lifetime kind of event, so why not.

Thus, the sun has started to push through and I'd like to make something worthwhile of today.  And being motivated, even on New Year's Day is okay by me...
