Merry Christmas To All and To All A Good Night

Hey!

Wow, it’s Christmas week already. This season will chew you up and spit you out if you let it. Last night I just finished my gig as technical director and sound engineer for a local Christmas musical. It was quite the production. Now, it’s back to your regularly scheduled gigs.

I’ve got a couple more that I’m doing this year that weren’t originally on the calendar. I’m going to do a Christmas Eve morning set, as well as a chill New Year’s Eve set. I also picked up a second Maverick’s gig on December 30th at 9pm, and we’re going to rock 2017 out.

This time of year is supposed to be marked by peace, goodwill to men, silent night, and all of that. It should be a time of reflection and joy. So many times though, it’s just not. What do we do about that? How do we recapture that piece of ourselves? It doesn’t come easily. Life comes at you at one hundred miles an hour, and sometimes all you can do is brace for impact. It’s not always fair. It’s not the collision that is the problem though. Those things are going to come. You don’t have a say in that. It’s all how you walk away from the wreckage. It’s so important to find peace in the middle of the storm. That is the challenge in all of it. For me, I make sure to remember where my source of peace comes from… faith in something bigger than me that sees the bigger picture in all of it. Sometimes, it’s a moment to moment struggle, but it’s so important.

As my friends, I want to to wish you a Merry Christmas. If Christmas isn’t your thing, that’s cool. Just know that I’m hoping for something good for you. I believe that you deserve only the best. I’ll see you soon.

Peace, love, and all that,

JB
