I close my eyes, that's what i do


I can't say i love new year's eve, because i don't.
It used to be really special but it became a really dark time of the year since my early 20's and that went on for several years, until it became a day like all the others.
I have no special will for partying or great reunions nor want to feel extra-super-mega happy.
It just doesn't work for me.
But as i can't just ignore it, i realized a few years ago that it would be a happier day if i just had some wishes for the upcoming year.
I know that this is what everybody does, make great plans and trace goals but i usually close my eyes at midnight and wish really hard that all my loving ones will be here healthy and happy always. And that's enough for me.

This was a tough year in several ways, but was also the year where i accomplished a lot on my own and had the time to see my daughter growing before my eyes.
I also created cooler and wooler and am thankful for all the kind words and attitudes i received from many of you.


Musically speaking, there were a few bands i'll keep in my ears and heart forever. Fanfarlo were one of them. You can see/listen to all their videos here.
I leave you a video of a Smashing Pumpkins cover that i find genious, even better than the real thing.
I hope you enjoy it and see you next year!


Fanfarlo, We only come out at night (Smashing Pumpkins cover)
