Chas Justus, a cat who played in my students' first recital at the Academy back in 1995, has just released an original country song that speaks to the wistful melancholy of past reflections. I share this with you as we start a new year, creating a new slate of memories that will be looked back upon in the years yet to come. https://chasjustus.bandcamp.com/track/old-habits-courtney-granger?from=fanpub_fnb_trk&utm_source=track_release&utm_medium=email&utm_content=fanpub_fnb_trk&utm_campaign=chasjustus%20track%20old-habits-courtney-granger&fbclid=IwAR2_QmeEYajS_Sy1u-VQ_XurNPGEPSxgLMeD-8fVtf_feliyfp_pZS-d79o
