It is a season of endings, and tonight, I had my very last session at the Berklee Film Scoring studio. It’s pretty much the closest I’ll get to ever going to Hogwarts because we use wands (batons). With any luck and divine providence I will get to keep doing this with my life.
I am feeling incredibly blessed, exhausted, and relieved after a massive project.
Huge shout out to my engineer Scott…That guy has gotten me through a large amount of projects in my Berklee career.
Now I am one step closer to admitting that I must pack up my entire house to move. Isn’t it easier just to throw all this stuff away?

My Berklee classes start tomorrow and thus ends the Glorious Summer Adventure that was this past 4 months. I have found myself wondering over and over how I get to live this life?
As sad as I am to say goodbye to my summer freedom, quiet contemplation time, and general state of being free, however, I am thrilled about my high level film scoring classes, and the incredible teams of people I get to collaborate with this year. Through jobs, and volunteering I find myself working with some of the most talented and competent people I’ve ever met.
I was just talking with Ryan tonight about what a blessing my communication degree, previous to Berklee, has been. I feel so equipped to shape organizations, teams, and projects from within, and effectively work with groups of professionals. What a privilege my education is. I am astounded that only 25% of American adults have a bachelor’s degree and I’m working on number 2. (maybe someday I’ll get to that master’s!)
I feel an overwhelming peace in the busyness.
I relish the rich work and friend relationships I am blessed with.
I am gearing up to write the best music I’ve ever written this year.
Last year as a Berklee student.
Maybe my last year in Boston.
Maybe my last year not being a parent.
This year will be the end of things, and hopefully filled with the best of things.
