Taking on a personal challenge this December that I'm calling Gratitude from A to Z. Each of the next 26 days I am riffing on one thing that I am grateful for. My purpose is to exercise a sense of gratitude for what I have and revive my regular blogging habit. The final month of the year is an appropriate time for thoughtful reflection.
Today I am grateful for my audience - individuals like you who care enough to pay attention to my creative work. The energy I receive from my audience drives my creative process and inspires me forward. Not all audiences are engaged - there was that time my old band played a gig in a bowling alley - but it is still an honour to have the opportunity to entertain and engage others.
Sometimes the audience is large and sometimes the audience is small. Sometimes the audience is engaged and sometimes the audience is distracted. But every time there is an audience, it provides an opportunity to touch a heart, spread love and cultivate joy.
I am grateful for the opportunity.
