    Happy New Year Paul and to BTG readers!! Just got back from celebrating the holidays with family and had extremely limited access to a computer. It’s so nice to be back at home and checking with Burning The Ground. Paul, as you know, this is my favorite destination in Cyberspace. You’ve created this wondrous magical musical place that makes me and so many others happy. I loved reading the stats for 2014!! It was an incredible year and I can only imagine what the new year will have in store. Paul, you are the ULTIMATE with what you do and I am so pyched for 2015!! You are all about cool discoveries and gorgeous sound. Not everyone has the patience that you have. It’s so superb being able to celebrate music with you on an almost daily basis. I hope you never tire of doing what you’re doing. Thanks for making and keeping this place full of light and love. You are a beautiful soul my friend!!

    Most warmly,

    Jeff

    I love the year end stats. It’s very cool you do that. This is one of the only sites that I never bother closing the tab on. Yes, Burning The Ground gets its very own tab in my browser! I enjoy the site for the comment community almost as much as the music. I hope this year is a positive one for you, Paul, as well as all of the other BTGers out there. 😎

    Thank you so much Paul. Here’s hoping a Happy New Year, good health, happiness, you already have lots of friends so that’s covered, maybe a special someone. You have made my years happier with the music that can change my mood, depression, bipolar, with just a few beats and measures I am in a different and better place. Heres to “champagne wishes, and caviar dreams,” as someone in the 80s used to say.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Nathan thank you for sharing your story. I am so happy that the music I post can touch someone’s life and make them feel better that is my goal 🙂 Happy New Year filled with happiness and good health 🙂
