Accepting Limitations: Music Historian’s 9th Year

The year 2019 for Music Historian started with me making amends. I had been delayed in publishing a few interview articles for artists—one of the reasons being that life really got in the way. I even let it consume me.

By the time I came back around to completing these delayed projects, I had spent three weeks on bed rest from a significant and much-needed operation. Besides taking the time to complete work for my day-job from home, while I healed, I decided to dedicate my free time to completing outstanding projects for Music Historian; they included interview articles with Kim Ware and Gypsy George.

Rather than wallowing in self-pity, I focused on gratitude. I had been in the company of interview subjects who displayed kindness and understanding for some of the difficult times I had experienced. In return, I produced quality articles, something which I would like to think has become a staple for Music Historian.

Luckily, I had time in 2019 for one more interview article. That was with MC Frontalot about his new record, Net Split. The rest of 2019 would turn out to be a crazy year filled with significant changes, including uphill battles, healing from physical complications, a break-up, and relocating. Life is hard, life will bring you down, and it is crucial to accept limitations. My barriers for 2019 meant that I would not be able to publish as much content on my blog. Nevertheless, I fed the fire in my belly to continue attentively listening to music and nurturing the art of a great interview would feed the passion behind the content on Music Historian.
