The year is coming to an end – so is the related movement. I think I am about to start my Christmas Holidays now – when I got this opportunity. Christmas and this time of the year is a great spot for the review. When I think what has happened this year – I cannot be anything but grateful. I’ve got to meet great people – from the different parts of the world and in many different situations. Because the picture is worth a thousand words, I decided to make a small-scale photo collage.
These book-in-hand photos became a cute little phenomenon. They are still fun to get. If you happen to hit your hands on the book, I am more than happy to get a picture of it.
There have been several moments in the past year and a half – planning moments with Liisa Tolonen at Arcada University of Applied Sciences.
I have known Annika for three years – right from the beginning of her solo career. Now it’s finally happening – the debut album will be released in 2020.
Auditions are great to keep. The band traveled 600 kilometers for one audition. Their second album is coming out next year.
This class was and is a pleasure. Even if I had to travel a few thousand kilometers in just over six weeks, it didn’t feel like it. The class atmosphere was so positive and inspiring.
One of the last meetings of the year – but not the least. I heard Axel‘s thoughts on his music and would have listened to it for several hours. Rarely four and a half hours go by that fast.
Finally, a much asked question. Is there a new book coming? The answer is yes and no. I have been writing new material aside. The difficult decision is whether to include it as an addition to the earlier trilogy, or to make a whole new book.
I wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
