Time keeps on slippin'...slippin'...slippin'...into the future.
And before we know it the future has come and gone and it is your Birthday again. I remember vividly when I was a young boy, all of my elders telling me that as you get older, time passes more quickly, and before you know it, decades pass like months. I never really believed them and never understood how time could seem to pass any different for anyone else than it could for me, no matter how old they were. I also never understood or believed them when they told me that no matter how old you are, you will, for the most part, always feel the same inside. Your body may be 70, but inside some days, your memories make you 35 again. Well, like most things we never realized when we were young and all of the things our elders told us that we didn't believe, well, they were right. Getting older is a strange phenomenon, and no, just like you have also heard many say, getting older is not for sissy's. I say that not as an elderly person but someone who is without question on the backside of my journey.
Today is my Birthday, and I am very thankful to be here and have all that I have in my life. I am remarkably blessed in many ways, and I count my blessings every day. It has been an extremely challenging year for me in many ways, but on the other hand, some remarkable things have also happened that make me count my lucky stars.
To celebrate my Birthday today, I am releasing my brand new website. It is still JeffPike.com, but the feel and look are entirely different and updated. I want to thank my good friend and colleague, Joseph Patrick Moore, for doing all the design and tech work to bring my new website to life. I am very proud of it. I hope you will take some time to check it out and drop me a line and let me know what you think, and though work is still very slim, I will be updating my concert calendar regularly. So please come back often.
As another trip around the sun comes to an end, again, I want to thank everyone who has been a part of my life. And for all of you who have enjoyed my music, thank you for giving me a colorful life and career that has lasted much longer than I ever imagined it would, God willing there will be much more to come.
Count your blessings and remember your dreams.
