Four years ago, on this very day, I signed up for Newgrounds to post my music. Now the time has come for me to post this: my final song. When I set out to make an album inspired by Homer's Odyssey, I was simultaneously chronicling my own odyssey. My journey took me from being a student and amateur composer, who lived in a studio apartment with one window facing a brick wall, to where I am today.
Although I've decided to give it up, my ability to improvise and compose has grown significantly over the last few years. And along the way I received some excellent feedback and encouragement from the Newgrounds community (including a few zero-bombers). So this song is for you and me both. Let it be a reminder that our journeys are never over. Newgrounds will continue to be a place to foster talent and shenanigans. As for me, I may be finished making music, but I am on a new path now, and there is much for me to do.
