After a few dozen scraps of pictured memories, ten years can pass in minutes. A slur of words later and maybe you’re wondering where you came from or where you’re heading, but mainly you’re asking yourself how you feel about the journey all together. You might be steering the wheel or just along for the ride, but either way the adventure is just as much yours as it is anyone else’s. My journey began one Christmas morning, with a child sized acoustic guitar and a song book from the Disney movie Aladdin, and I’ve been on this road ever since. I don’t know if I ever really left that dream world in my head, the one we all do our best to hold onto before reality starts ripping from our grasp.
I went to a small school in a small town where I scribbled songs on small pieces of paper for the better half of my time there, and that’s most of what I remember about the first part of the past ten years. I joined my first band during that time, and it left me with my first true realization that some things will end. It taught me a concept far more important and worthwhile than that though, it taught me that some things go on too. Now, looking back at all the time that has passed and the songs that I’ve written, I’m starting to see the smudges disappear and the window is starting to look clear. I still can’t see what’s on the other side, but I’ll keep writing and maybe after the next 10 years pass, that’s what I’ll find.
