At the start of every new year, I wonder what the year will bring, what new music I will discover.

I also wonder what I will think. What thoughts or ideas I will let go of and whether they will be replaced by new ideas. Maybe not. Maybe they will be replaced just with questions. Not being afraid of letting go was a major achievement. Old thoughts were helpful, I am grateful, but now it’s time to let them go. Good bye.

I always fear that the new year will not be as good as the previous one, that maybe there is not so much left to be discovered. But there always is, of course.

We change, our inner needs change. There is always something new waiting for us if we are open.
