I think we are all glad to see the back of 2020 and hope that 2021 sees things return to something closer to pre-COVID19 normality. My personal feeling is that there is still a long way to go, but things seem to be trending in the right direction. Hopefully, by mid-2021, we will all be a bit clearer on a roadmap to get back to regularly seeing family, friends and eventually enjoying live music and travelling.
Even though 2020 has been a crappy year, reflecting on it, I still feel there are positives and lots that I have learnt. From a family perspective, we have spent more time together, and I am really grateful for that opportunity. At the same time, there were limited opportunities to visit other family members and the time spent with them became more valuable than ever. My circle of friends and all the MoveDaHouse.com crew has also played a big part in getting through the year, and I think we all helped each other to stay sane at different stages of 2020. A big thanks to all my family and friends for being there and helping in some bizarre times.
From a music point of view, I certainly reconnected with how important electronic music is to me. Having the escape of crate digging, putting together mixes and playing for others is vital to who I am, and without it, it's like a missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle. I needed to take an extended break during the middle of 2020. While the benefits of djing to my wellbeing were re-enforced to me confirming the important part music plays in my life and that overall I'm a better person when it's a part of what I do.
