One year ago today, I first fired up this oven. It was, as it is tonight, New Year’s Eve. Here’s what I had to say about that.
In a few minutes, I will fly off to the ancient, exotic land of my ancestors. So, you could say I’m traveling to the past this New Year’s Eve. On the other hand, since I’m flying east, technically I’m accelerating to the future!
Either way, I’ll get through the year.
It’s been a strange, painful, joyful, beautiful year. I’ve grown and decayed. I’ve acquired new memories. I’ve had my heart broken and my funny bone tickled. I have made new friends and rediscovered some old ones. I’ve lost some pieces of myself and found others I never knew I had. I’ve shed some cherished illusions and built some new dreams to chase.
I haven’t reached any new destinations in 2008, but I sure have found my way.
Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll keep coming back.
Happy New Year.
