Living with change

Prev Next

The one thing you can count on to never change is change.

Nothing's actually static or steady, as much as we'd like to think otherwise. Adjusting to that fact is often difficult for us. It certainly is for me.

Now that fall is here there's a new and unexpected change in my routine. Shoveling bear poop. Yup, every night Boulder bears come down out of the hills and feast on our town's bounty of apples and then, for some unexplained reason, find their way to our house and relieve themselves. And not in small amounts. It's been an adjustment period for me, for sure.

But that change will shortly be over as winter sets in and the apples are eaten.

Over in the audio world I have had to start changing my habits too. Where formerly all I did was listen to music through my server, now I am contemplating the spinning of discs and retiring the server. The DMP is so much better than what comes out of my hard drive, either through USB or the Bridge, that I have had to mentally start reevaluating everything I do (I haven't had more than a few hours with DMP, so this is all in anticipation).

An iPad is a heck of a lot more convenient than opening a stack of CDs, but the short time I have been privileged to pry DMP out of the hands of engineering, have proven to me change is again marching forward in Music Room One.

About the time I get used to discs again we'll figure out how to make servers sound better. Maybe.

In the meantime this new change needs to be dealt with. The library needs rearranging, a place to stack my favorites has to be cleared away, until finally it feels like I've settled in and things won't change again.
