Last time I was here, it was summer, I was back from my vacations and then summer turned into a break-up, which turned into letting go of my 6 year relationship with a man a truly and deeply loved. Then fall was around the corner and I realized that I had moved 3 times in 3 months. I settled in a new apartment to live by myself and today it is Christmas day, it is snowing outside and I thought I’d do a small round up of what has been happening.
Well, what more is there to say. Getting your heart broken sucks and hurts. I spent a lot a time with family and friends and I am thankful for them, their love and presence. I went to my parents summerhouse, stared at the river, and took it one day at a time.
One great thing that happened though was hearing my voice, my words, my singing opening the Eaux Claires ‘Please Listen’ track announcing the 4th edition. Guys! MY VOICE! I still can’t believe it and every time I hear it, I get goosebumps. This is INSANE! In the demo that I had send, I was singing ‘Il y a longtemps que je t’aime, jamais je ne t’oublierai’ and they actually used half of it, like ME singing (yes with a lots of echo) on the website of Eaux Claires. CRAY CRAY. This was, as tiny as it might seem, a real moment of pure joy and it felt good to feel happiness in the midst of the storm.
I haven’t seen that many shows in the last few months but have seen Arcade Fire and The National. They both play my favorite song (Neon Bible for AF and Wasp Nest for The National).
I planned on going to see Iam, Olafur Arnalds, S.Carey, to name only a few. When I think about 2017, I am SO glad it is over. But at the same time, I ‘met’ one of my idol (read about the so so experience here). I strengthened friendships and hopefully will get to meet new awesome people in 2018. I don’t know what is awaiting, but it has got to be better than 2017! I wish you all the best and see you in 2018 where we will be celebrating a wedding, going to shows, getting to sing new material and connect with people.
