Sitting indoors on a grey, rainy Vermont autumn afternoon, I was thinking about how amazing it is about the people that come our way. Being in the music business I have come in contact with an incredible amount of people, from artists to engineers, publicists and others who make this business go round. Some have been in this business for forty plus years, others are relatively new, yet everyone has such amazing views and things to share.
Since I am also a firm believer in synchronicity, I believe that people come into our lives at certain times when we are ready for them and they are ready for us. Some stay a lifetime, some leave when our work together is over. Back when I was an actor, I always found it fascinating the way we were brought together with other people for a specific job, and why some would remain in my life long after and some I never saw again, or maybe passed each other by through that crazy business. In my current work as a musician, I have been blessed with people who have become part of my amazing team, plus being friends and colleagues with other amazing artists who are also beautiful people and have enriched my life tremendously.
As I look back, I can see when these people entered my life and, at times, I can see why. Have you ever looked back at a specific period of your life to see who came into it and the reason this may be? I find this a wonderful exercise, not to mention I can then give thanks for such people, those who have come and stayed and those who may have come, gifted me with their presence for a time and then have gone.
