Here’s to you, 2012

News December 31, 2012 7:37 am

And what a year it has been. Good, bad, lovely, scary. Its funny how we celebrate a year, make our resolutions and dance until dawn as if closing off that small chapter in our infinite, limited days. I go along with it and I have my resolutions written out, some deeper (stop worrying so much of what others think) some very shallow (no more wearing maternity clothing) and some the same (get that fucking drivers license already). Who knows what it means.. but I like the ritual of it, anyway. This year I had a baby, and, how much I loathed when people said this to me before it, life really is never the same. Its joys and intensities seem boundless. I am sure if you look back on it, you have had quite a year yourself. And collectively, our small little world has had one hell of a 365 day ride. There has been much to live through and much to look at from afar, both heartbreaking and astounding. So, lets package it all up. Lets look back, move forward. Lets make it better. Lets toast to what that next chapter might bring. See you in 2013.

Love, kate
