What a year 2009 has has been! As it comes to a close and 2010 awaits us, just around the corner, I can’t help but think back at how thankful I am.
Highlights of 2009 included the opportunity to act beside one of my favorites (Christian Slater) in “The Forgotten”; truly a surreal moment for me. As was finally getting to see the beauty that is Hawai’i!
The film I did “Cummings Farm” premiered at the New Orleans film festival, then made its rounds at the Austin Film Fest. Most recently, it was just accepted to the SLAMDANCE film festival, which happens in Park City, Utah alongside SUNDANCE. Out of 5,000 submissions,only 18 films were chosen, and “Cummings Farm” is one of them! I have never been to Sundance yet, So I am super excited to head there in January.
Music has started to leak back in my life, which I am so happy for. I have a few acoustic shows lined up for the new year, and am so excited about getting back on the stage.
Although, 2009 had its struggles, I think it was a wonderful year for planting many seeds that will bloom, and flourish in the upcoming months and I can’t wait!
I hope everyone had a safe and magical holiday season, remembering how lucky we all are to get to live our dreams and make things happen.
With that said, I leave you with a little “Boxing Day” Treat – a song I wrote a few years ago with my old band “The Charles Shaw Project” on Boxing Day! It was originally called “Queensbury Rules” which is a code of rules generally accepted in boxing, but we changed the title to make it simpler. I love this song because it reminds me however bad things may get, or how many times we fall….you just gotta get back up.
Enjoy the New Year, and get ready for a Kick Ass 2010. I’ll be sure to update this thing more frequently in the New Year and not be so technologically lazy. 🙂
Much love and blessings.
