Christmas season is upon us and the new year is approaching. With it I have bright hopes for more good things waiting in the wings. I hope they hear their cues soon so entrances can be made.
This past Thursday was #pitmad and it's always a fun time (even though I have to work through most of it). Lots of retweets and new followers - I haven't had the chance to follow back yet but I certainly will very soon. The event was good for me with a few favorites. Now it's time to wait and see if they turn into anything..
I missed the last few hours of #pitmad because I had tickets to a Christmas concert at a local high school. I live in a smallish town in NJ that doesn't get much in the way of "big" acts. For that I'd have to travel to New York City, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, or even New Brunswick. We don't have any big concert halls and couldn't support them due to our proximity to the larger cities.
So, hearing Phil Coulter would be playing at a high school down the street from my office was pretty exciting. And, the concert was the perfect end to a great day. I've been on Phils's Tranquility Cruise twice so I'd heard all of the songs Phil played before except for one - Bright, Brand New Day.
Even though the song is about the Irish city of Derry coming alive after The Troubles I sat up straighter in my seat as I listened to it. I was so close to my own bright, brand new day. I felt like I was ready to head down a new road. To stand up and say "I'm ready".
And I am. I'm ready for my bright, brand new day.
