My overwhelming feeling is one of gratitude, because it has been a really good year for me. I know it has been very difficult for many of you, and lots of my friends, both online and offline, will be glad to say goodbye to 2013.
Some years are like that, I've had my share of them too. I think that getting older has made me relish the good times, because I know that life is a mix of good and bad/difficult, so my feeling is "ya gotta enjoy it while it lasts".
The final video of 2013 is of a momentous event in my musical life...the Massed Horn Choir playing Bohemian Rhapsody. The honour of playing in this concert, in memory of the son of a dear friend, was huge. Listening back to the video, I savour the feeling of "I just can't believe this could be happening"! In a good way!
I hope you enjoy it. If you don't want to listen to all 6 minutes, listen to the final minute or so...the horn sounds are so beautiful at the part.
I'm standing to the left and behind, the girl with the beautiful long red hair, roughly centre of picture.
Wishing you all a very happy and healthy and fun 2014!
