2017 was one of the worst years of my life emotionally and in terms of mental health. I have never experienced such pervasive and immobilizing anxiety and rumination before. A lot of the people around me were going through similarly awful things, making it that much harder. As always, when things are dark creativity flourishes–I am proud to say I have recorded more music this year than any other. Big things are happening in the coming months and I look towards 2018 with determination, happy for bad memories to fade.
