Summer was amazing. Met a lot of cool people. Did a lot of cool things. Summer is one of those times where you never want it to end. Yeah it’s not particularly my favorite season (I’m more of a jeans and t-shirt kinda guy), especially with that unbearable heat wave we experienced, but I think people hold onto the thought of what summer symbolizes for the youth of our country. A break from the reality of our lives and three months of time to kind of live in the moment. Forget planning and navigating our lives. Just live with what we have and learn to find beauty in the simple days of doing nothing and having nothing to do, but at the same time having everything to do. That’s always the best. For kids to the general age of 23-24, thats what summer is. I commend the rest of the workforce for being able to continue working hard and providing ‘cause I sure as hell would have a hard time doing that. I wanna stay a kid forever. I’m sort of surprised no one has invented any sort of drink, potion, spell, or something of that nature yet. In the mean time I’ll just enjoy every second I have with the people I love. Make the best of the time you have, even if it doesn’t seem like it’s enough every second counts.
Anyway, now that fall has presented itself I’m actually pretty interested to see how it all goes. I feel like I’m entering a new chapter of my life once again. I turn 21, become an uncle, go back to school, attend two weddings for family members and continue to write a lot of music. Sounds kinda hectic to me. But there’s a lot of cool things in the works. I find it particularly ironic that I wrote something similar to this almost exactly one year ago. Fall really is the season of change. Every fall I enter something new and crazy in my life. I got to do so many things this past year that I would have never planned or expected. This year could be the exact same scenario. It’s the beauty of life. Keep things interesting and new. Bring the people you love with you. That’s what it’s all about. Good luck to everyone in this fall season. Have an open heart and mind. Never forget who you are and where you wanna be.
Hands to the Stars coming this fall.
