Status: I get by with a little help from my friends. Mood: grateful :)
I don’t know how many of you use MySpace regularly but I can tell you that imho, the new version is quite attrocious. Cluttered, chaotic and teeming with even more useless advertisements and information than ever before, to put it bluntly, I hate it. However, one thing that I’m glad they saved from the devastation was the “status and mood” bar. I always felt that the addition of “mood” as opposed to Facebook’s sole “status” set it apart from other social networks.
It’s quite rare that I go to MySpace nowadays. But when I do, I usually put something like the title of this blog as my status and mood. Because every time I listen to music or have a concert or hold a workshop or have a lesson or sing one single note, I think about all the people who held my hand along the way. And am very, very grateful to them for helping me come to this point. I spoke to my dear teacher Baldo a couple of weeks ago and thanked him for giving me the wings to fly towards my dreams.
I dedicate this blog to all of you, to all my friends both real and virtual, who have given me positive energy to keep going the distance, for giving me a perch to land on when I’ve needed a rest, for helping me heal my wings when they’ve been injured. I thank you for listening to our music, visiting this website, coming to our concerts, dropping me the occasional line. It means the world to me.
There are still many heights for me to reach and I know that I’ll get by with a little help from you, my friends.
