13 degrees, January and seven. It’s warmer inside but we can still see our breath. Playing board games in low-light conditions. Making grandiose plans for the good times ahead. Outlets pump life into lighting devices we’ll regret we left on when the envelopes come. Yeah, we had some setbacks but it was a good year and I do believe there are things we learned from. If this is all a dream, then I don’t wanna wake up. If this is all a dream, then I’m staying asleep. Body heat warms up the crumbling apartments where friends and acquaintances gather to talk. We stood on the rooftop. I told you I loved you and as if on cue, the fireworks went off. If this is all a dream, then I don’t wanna wake up. If this is all a dream, then I’m staying asleep. And I will hibernate through every freezing winter. I can wait it out. I want to show you I am strong.

Listen/purchase: Wherever I Might Land by Signals Midwest

Cam just sent me a song that describes our feels from the past year to a T.
It was a hard year, but forward momentum is everything right now…

"we hatched a plan in early hours of the morning. i called favors in from family and saved enough to quit my job and there i was, lying to customs agents, trying to get through the border from my hometown through a snowstorm to an airplane to a shuttle to an airplane to a taxi to your door.

and now that i’m here, i couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. and i swear i’ll do my damnedest to express how good it felt to be so welcomed and looked after when i usually bring disaster to wherever i may stand. i know i lucked out when i touched down on dry land.

and we sweated through our t-shirts in the february summer. my amazement riding shotgun. yes, i think i’ll have another because even though my vision’s blurring, i’ve never been so clear on where to go.

now i know that it’s “everywhere i can” and now i’m back home making plans. i’m caught in cycles, looking for some work where i can use my hands. and though our schedules may not always line up, no matter where i am, i would be lucky to call someone like you “friend” wherever i might land.”
