I Have Been To Jupiter

Capturing the feeling of Christmas memories

There always exists a magic at this time of year. Remembering the glow of those large light bulbs illuminating a sparse tree decorated with ornaments and tinsel. It created a soft glow that is so unique to the time. Christmas music playing on the old stereo at the bottom of the stairway. Laying around lazily in the days after Christmas. I put into music some of those feelings that are evoked from this time and these memories.

I don’t know why this is the title, but these words were going through my head when writing this. So, that’s the name.

I have been to Jupiter
I have been around the world

I think about it in this way. For as much things change year after year, there are also so many things that stay the same. Almost as if you were travelling to some far-away place only to realize that the things that are important are always present – whether you’re on Jupiter or here on Earth. Even with all the challenges of this year, there is also a peace in those experiences that have shaped us.
