Bruce blogs! Welcome to the next step in my journey into the 21st century.
I hope to use this blog to share the things I am up to, and some of my thoughts. Many of these will relate to my musical endeavours, but they will also meander further afield.
2011 was a year full of terrible disasters on a world scale. It wasn’t a great year for me on a personal level either. A new year is just a mark on a calendar, but I see it as a way of starting afresh. I come into 2012 full of hope and positiveness.
In 2012 Jill and I celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We are planning our first overseas trip since before we had children back in the 1980s!
I wrote no new songs in 2011. I made a New Years Resolution to write at least one every month in 2012. I’ll keep you posted – but the first one is already born.
I have started 2012 with a wonderful trip to Tasmania, with two music festivals, two other concerts, and a heap of other great things. More on that in my next blog (my first REAL blog).
With my Unsung Heroes of Australian History collaborators, we commenced a crowd-funding campaign on New Years Day, to raise funds to develop educational resources linked to the show. So far it’s going gangbusters and the project is looking sure to get up. (http://www.pozible.com.au/index.php/archive/index/4592/description/0/0)
Our children continue their own journeys, sometimes blossoming, sometimes faltering. Two of our sons start university courses this year. Our oldest is about to move out of home. Another continues to explore dance and our youngest is full of enthusiasm for year 9 at school (now that’s a rare thing!)
So bring on 2012! let’s have a wonderful time!
