If you remember the last time I attended Mark’s birthday party, it was a surreal experience seeing Bamboo there and how great friends they all still are. I am a Rivermaya fan, mainly because if it weren’t for the music, I wouldn’t be in this simple spot in my career, probably stuck behind a desk at a law office. Whenever I start the year with Rivermaya, there’s always something epic that happens. Always.
TO YOU: this isn’t deliberate. I just couldn’t help it. I’m not really someone who has mastered the art restraint. Obviously.
I must say it was pretty difficult to decide on which ones since there are so many wonderful moments that always happen when you’re surrounded by great musicians. I wanted to do an EVERYTHING Highlight of 2011, but decided to just separate them all into different categories, and the easiest for me to pick were the random ones.
These are my personal choices, based on how each event affected me. I’m sure each one of us have our own highlights, but these are the ones which are relevant to me and which I saw with my own eyes.
It’s always magnificent to see two people who have met through music realize that their each other’s soulmates. To find inspiration in your partner and become each other’s muses is something very rare and should be something that everyone should aspire to have, because you know what? It exists. Mark and Jolina are a proof of that.
This is probably one of the longest photo posts in this blog because I’m not a wedding photographer (I tried, but I’m never gonna be any good at it, haha) but any event where people are brought together through love and music is something that deserves it’s own blog post.
