I am terribly late but here’s my New Year’s note! 🙂
” As the years go by,
Time too begins to wonder,
“Why do I exist?” “
Has anything changed?
This is what I asked myself as I began to write this and to be honest I really don’t know the answer to that. Maybe this is actually the year I’ll look back on after many more years have passed and I’ll say to myself, “I guess it was pretty significant after all”.
So much has happened though. I am no longer stuck on an island that teeters on the edge of the Indian, like a tear drop that refused to join the puddle on the floor. I am somewhere different, somewhere familiar yet new.
I have laughed, cried and conversed with the most beautiful and interesting of human beings. People still keep surprising me and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of meeting more of them. Faces, places and words are things I will always hold dear to my heart and I will never stop searching for them. So I hope the year ahead offers me more of the same.
I’ve looked back on all the words I’ve written this year and in them I’ve seen how my life is still as tragic and dramatic as ever. I don’t mind this at all…I think. I still do find myself to be agonizingly boring but I am grateful that my feelings still move me enough to spring some words into existence. So thank you kind reader or stumbler for sparing those precious seconds to read something I wrote. It truly means the world to me.
Some final thoughts. I’ve managed to stumble across some wonderful souls here, their writing and thoughts have captured my attention in such a way that I will always look forward to their words. If I’ve ever left a word or two on your site, then please know that I adore the mind that wrote those words. As long as you love writing please continue to do so!
Happy New Year, everybody.
