How I named my blog

Anyone who truly knows me would know that my favorite band is Yes.  Of all the music I listen to, Yes wrote some of the only music that I can still actually enjoy after two and a half years of music theory classes.  The pinnacle of their creative genius (in my humble opinion) is represented by their 1972 album Close to the Edge.  The eighteen minute, forty three second long title track from that album is one of my favorite songs of all time and I thought it a good starting place for a blog that would, at times, speak of music.

Close to the Edge - Inside Cover

In addition, I thought the title captured where I am in my life right now rather accurately.  I just started my last semester of college, am almost finished recording my band’s debut album, and am about to start figuring out what I’m going to do with the rest of my life.

Thanks for reading!  I’ll let you know when I’ve gone over the edge.
