Happy New Year!

New Year’s Eve:

As new year’s eve approaches, I think back to the holidays in my past. While I love to entertain, I must say that I didn’t look forward to new year’s eve. I felt that the crowd had a different personality than they had on other days of the year. Many of our regular customers were replaced by folks who, evidently, didn’t get out much during the rest of the year. They were difficult for me to reach, and it was a challenge to develop a rapport with them. I believe another reason I didn’t enjoy that day was that I had to leave my family while others were enjoying times with their close friends and family. Of course, I was grateful to have a nice job playing for nice people; however, there are days which belong to those we love. For me, new year’s eve was one of those occasions. It’s a great time to look both forward and back. I hope you will have much to be grateful for this year, and that next year will be a bright one for all of us. Thanks for your support of my blog; happy new year!
