There are some things that just fit, feel right and are around for a long time. There are other things that just last for a season or two. Sometimes that can be friends, romantic relationships, jobs, other endeavors and of course this applies to music as well. There is some music that I haven’t listened to in a long time and I put it on and it feels just right. There’s some music that I haven’t listened to in a long time and I put it on and I question why I ever liked it in the first place. The latter is a seasonal choice. Having seasonal choices I believe is a good thing because it shows growth.

So as we enter a new season of the year, are there any musical offerings that don’t fit you anymore? In your opinion is that a positive or negative revelation? How do you handle growing pains?
