Wow. What a year. Or six. It’s been a while since I graced these pages with my erudite wit on all things about me. Here’s a quick review for all my reader(s) ( “What up Einar!”).
In 2015, I stopped working and stopped being married. At the time, I was in a career that I often referred to as the “best job I ever had” and was betrothed for 10+ years.
With the dissolution of both career and marriage, I was all “I’m great, I am going with the flow, this will be good for everyone.” This is called lying to yourself. I did some things. I had some ideas. I traveled. I got in shape. I spent time with myself. I got a dog. It’s a cliche to call this a mid-life crisis, but I am 45 and while I wouldn’t necessarily say I was in crisis, I was certainly searching for meaning.
One of my priorities in 2017 is to share more; both in this space and on this blog. I have to believe I am not the only person who’s life hasn’t exactly gone as planned ( planned, wtf?) and perhaps my thoughts and comments here will help others who are going through similar life changes. I don’t have the answers, and rarely even know the questions, but if anyone out there wants to chat, connect or share, I am all ears. Talking helps.
Annnnnndd…. Queue awkward segue to Best of 2016 list…
Anyone who knows me, knows I am all about the music. For many reasons, 2016 was a rough year. We said goodbye to many of our heroes, and elected a fucking clown as President. Interestingly, it was a very good year for music. With that spirit, I have put together the laziest playlist ever – sorry. I just dumped all my favorite albums into one list!!
