Notes: Another year has gone by! This week marks 12 years of this weekly writing and recording project. To celebrate, I have compiled a free download of my favorite tracks from the past year, 28 of them in total. I'm not sure if people still download music. If you do, head to linktr.ee/mounteverestmusic
to get it!
This was a year of change for me. Much of my writing was focused on the decision to move away from Brooklyn, and the emotional journey of following through with that decision. Listening back to the year's songs, I've tried to have the final word on the subject several times. I always fell short or found another angle. I imagined that I would dig deep into it someday after the move. That's what this song is for me. I doubt there will ever be a final word. After all, leaving a place that has become home after 9 years is a whole thing.
I always like to use these anniversary posts as an opportunity to say thank you. If I were to get specific about it, I am grateful to far too many people to list. I will forget someone and feel awful, so if you have ever collaborated, listened, shared a link, or liked a post, I'm grateful and I keep doing this because of you. I am most indebted to my my wife, Rebecca, and my parents, Nancy and Gene. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your stalwart love, support, and encouragement. Also, today is my brother Eben's birthday! Happy Birthday, Eben!
I'm excited to put my roots down here in Maine, and to find out what my music sounds like as that happens. If you'd like to find out with me, I'll be back with a new song next week. Thanks for being here, and thanks for listening.
