I took a look back at the first 31 days of 2011 and listed a few highlights. I couldn’t squeeze them all in – that’s a good thing.  Regardless, I’m  grateful for the wonderful people who are in my life and I’ve met along the way this past month.

1. CD compilation from Steve Tibbetts/Frammis.
2. My first Chinese New Year Party  – Go Rabbit, Go!
3. Winning a contest via Facebook  – hmm… Who will get to partake in the prize?

10. Insightful postings and innovation awareness from Alex Lightman.
11. Celebrating the life of Jimmy Wyble, musician, friend, and a human being who had the qualities of a Buddha.

14. Hanging and playing music with Michael Barsimanto – I guess we can thank the Blue Whale for our reconnection.
15. Woodshed Recording/Richard Gibbs ( he current METal Focus Guy).
16. My tongue drum –  It asks a question but has no answer.
