Back to Blogging. It has been a year since I have blogged every day on my 1971 journal of my year in Vienna, Austria. I have been planning to come back to this blog for quite some time. There have been too many things going on in “real life” that I haven’t been able to focus on completing my journal entries on a day-to-day basis. I missed blogging and so I’m back.

I will continue to post the dates as if it were 36 years ago in order to keep the calendar integrity of the blog correct.

Here are some things that gave me the wake-up call to return.

• I missed writing.

• I want to complete the project.

• I recently returned from NAMM 2009 (music trade show) and saw the Vienna Symphonic Library gang. Just around this time last year, is when I stopped blogging. The VSL sampling library and new products are amazing.

• Some of my college friends are starting to show up on Facebook and LinkedIn. It’s wonderful to write to them and find out what has happened to them in 36+ years.

• I met my first Austrian at the part-time job where I worked. It was a delight to speak to her and it brought back these wonderful memories.

• I need a break from all of the dreary news in this terrible 2008 and 2009 economy.

I hope that you will start up reading with me, once again. Thanks.

Changes to the Blog. I am going to try and expand some of the elements of the blog this year, particularly with pictures for a better viewing experience.
