The months can prove long and dark - don't forget your music! Either playing it or listening to it, having the luxury of music in your life can bring so much to it.
Share with your friends, look for new challenges, and play for others - it can make a day brighter for everyone. Plus you improve and become a more solid performer, so everyone wins.
Go get your music on!
January can be a bleak month, for many reasons, and for many people. I keep busy making plans for the next spring and summer, and taking things off the never-ending checklist. I make sure to call friends and cause laughter to break out, because you never know what great you can be giving. Just give, and you'll get so much more in return.
But don't forget....we're Canadian, and that means we're silly and fun, snowbound and sarcastic. We are champions.
