This is an interesting fact about me...

In all my years of playing keyboards, I've owned several keyboards.

Different models, different brands.

However, I JUST had a realization a few months ago....

I've NEVER bought myself a new keyboard.

When I started playing keyboards professionally (20 years ago), I faced a shocking reality...

Today's my 36th Birthday!!!  Turn up, turn up!!!

I'm so thankful to see this day.  I'm thankful for the man God has made me to be so far.  I'm thankful for what He's making me to be.

Birthdays, anniversaries, and other milestones tend to cause me to "take inventory"...
