     I would like to start off the New Year by wishing my family, friends, and everyone else who has been following my musical journey, a fabulous 2009 !  I hope that this will be a great year for everyone. 

     Before I talk about my plans for this new year, I would like to reflect back on 2008, and all the changes it brought for me.  As many of you know, it was the year that I made a lot of major decisions about my life.  I wasn’t feeling much joy in my day job any more, we were living in a tiny, old, noisy apartment for many years, and we were tired of all the noise and traffic in the city.  We decided to do something about it – all of it, at once, actually.  I left my job, which was probably the best decision I’ve ever made in many ways, as my stress level has gone way down since then.  We gave our notice at our tiny apartment, stopped throwing away rent money into someone else’s pocket, and finally purchased our first home. ( yes, rather late in life, but better than not at all .) Lastly, we left the big city to move somewhere much more peaceful, where the pace of life is not so rushed.  All of these have turned out to be good decisions for us, as our quality of life has vastly improved.  Of course, as my Producer and friend Jarome Matthew said soon after all these changes, ” making one major life change is huge, but changing all these big things at once is nothing short of overwhelming ” –  he was so right.  There have certainly been times when I have wondered if we made all the right choices …. but then I quickly come to my senses, and realize that we did what he had to do to try and make our life better.  We have had to make a lot of adjustments, and we miss being able to see some of our family and friends as often as we used to, but the important people in your life always stay in touch.  ( you know who you are, and how much I love you all !!! )

     Now that we’ve had a few months to settle in to our new life, and all that it entails, we are ready for a fresh start in 2009.  I have been keeping very busy with a lot of different tasks over the last while, but am now feeling totally ready to focus on moving forward with the 80’s Music Project that Jarome and I started in 2008.  I was already very happy to be working with him, but now that he has launched his Pro Soul Record Label, things are going to be even more exciting this year !

     I will write more soon, and let you know how things are going.  Thankyou all again for your love and support – and I will say it once again – it really is your encouragement that keeps me following my dreams !!!
