To Chris, in celebration of his birthday, life, and legacy. He would have been 37 today (Jan 13). Less than a year ago, his passing was our rebirth. It imbued me, his sister and his family with a sense of duty to live out his legacy. The life that he could have had. The life he would have wished for us. Rest in peace my friend.

"So it begins my friend.
The end, but not the end.
The end of a chapter. The end of a stanza.
A sheltered life; the life of my past.

I hear in the air, the call of a Siren.
A call to my soul. A call to my fate.
The Siren of change.
She announces my time.
The time of rebirth.
My hour of epiphany.

I am awake.
I can breathe. I am free.
This is where the new chapter begins."

Rebirth by The Whisper

Also, did you know that I have another podcast called Chill Pills (chill.upliftingpills.com). It features the same quality of craftmanship and careful curation you've come to expect from this show but focuses on more genres of music spanning chillout, lofi chill hop, chillstep and lounge.
