Is there something (a person, a cause, an idea) that you want to investigate more fully in 2015?

In short: me. :) My life has not been what I expected, in any way. I'm now in my 40s, and it's time to look around and re-evaluate. Things are pretty good really, even if they are not what I intended - but every now and then, the feeling that I have failed to live up to what I planned overwhelms me. I want to learn to value what I've accomplished, and what I am.

I want to continue to investigate the world around me, the natural surroundings and the man-made environments. I want to take the experiences I have in these environments, look for common threads, look for stories or small bits of beauty, and share them with whomever will listen to me talk or will read stories about where I've been, or whomever will look at my drawings or photographs and want to learn more.

I want to investigate the true songwriting process. It's more of a revisit with new eyes and additional information and skills acquired along the way. It's a journey from within, a battle of past ghosts, and a re-education of what I thought music production is all about.

I want to be more involved in Random acts if kindness.

Yes, I'd like to volunteer for some organization which helps people. I don't know in what capacity, but I feel as though I need to give my time to help others who may need it, not just my kids and family, but people I don't even know. I need to get outside of myself and help others connect to wellness, support, spirituality - something.
