A glance at December...
I have been pondering for days what I wanted to say in this first post of 2015, knowing that it had to come sooner than later and that I needed to address my virtual absence in this last month (my favorite of the year), and yet even now, I am at a loss for words. This holiday season has been backbreaking-ly busy, and filled with both joy and heartbreak, laughter and tears. I have taken too few pictures of the people I love and read too many books, stayed up far too late and slept in almost every morning. And although it has been an enjoyable season, when it comes right down to it, I don’t really want to reduce the complexity of what I have been feeling into mere words; I find I am at a loss and that is okay. That is what is nice about new beginnings.
The year before me also promises to be busy and filled with great changes. I am both worried about the changes we have in store and excited to see what the future holds. I always make big plans about the creative projects in which I want to engage, and this year is no different, but as I am unsure how much time I will be able to devote to them, I would prefer to not to share any goals with you here and be pleasantly surprised when I am able to share something with you. I am unsure what all of this means for this blog. I suspect that I will not have much to say while I process everything that is happening around me, but then again, I may find that I want to put everything into words. What I do know is that I need to be here in some capacity, to record something of my life even if it is the minutiae, so do not be alarmed if all you see is photographs for a while.
What I would like to do today, however, is wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year! And hope that you enjoyed a delightful, love-filled holiday season!
