Remember When I Used To Blog?

Twitter-0 killed the blogger-o star.

I've been a bit preoccupied with a little thing called "Relocation" Our town home in Atlanta has been on the market for 3 years and although we did not get a buyer, we have a committed renter. So we decided that "It's time to move on. It's time to get going. What lies ahead I have no way of knowing. Under my feet, the grass is growing. It's time to move on. Time to get going." (Tom Petty) After years of thinking we'd move to Hawaii (2002) then Florida (2007) then Nashville (2008) we realized that all of the those scenarios ended with, "Then after a while we'll move to Pennsylvania." (The land of my youth) Deciding to skip more transition, Sarah and I agreed after much prayer, that we would just go straight to Pennsylvania. 18 months later, we were finally able to pack up the house! Very quickly: we had 5 days to move out!

We found a place in PA and Lord willing, we'll close on it soon. In the meanwhile we're staying in Northeastern Georgia with my parents. Which is a ton of fun believe it or not! What a blessing it is to have a healthy family dynamic!

I've been spending the last week and a half going to Toccoa Falls College's practice rooms to work on my songs for a new album. I'm being quite proactive, so there is a lot of time for more songs to come but I'm excited about what I have already. Actually, Josh, Duffy, Scotty and I spent 5 days in a lake house near Clayton, GA to write music (no lyrics yet: intentionally) for the new album, and had a great and productive time!

My apologies to everyone who follows me on twitter, who already knew all of this...but here is new news: a new website is currently in the works and my blog will move to aaronshust.com It will be more of a one stop shop (like a real live website!) instead of a splash page connecting you to all my social networking sites. You'll have shows/tickets/pics/video/blog/etc. I'm rather excited. I'll probably blog more.

Until then. Twitter on!
