Two months have passed since my last blog post … and a lot has been happening …

Usually I set aside sometime to ponder a New Year — to reflect, project. Last year I rang in 2018 at a live Jimmy Buffett concert in Nashville — very far from my norm. This year I rang in 2019 downtown in Paradise South at 9pm. Yes, 9pm. You see “Paradise South” drops the ball at 9pm instead of midnight so everyone is sure to “make it.” It was a rather large celebration for a small town and the ball is homemade and dropped via fishing pole by the mayor from a second story balcony. It is not my norm to celebrate in any sort of crowd but the rest of it is keeping in line with my lifestyle from homemade to the fishing pole, all quite unconventional yet attainable. I’m beginning to wonder if maybe I’m developing a new norm? A crowd, loud?
