2009: Clock’s Still Tickin’…
Tomorrow we’ll review 2009, but it’s still not over. If I’ve learned anything this year, it’s to not jump the gun and just wait, so we’ll hold off on predictions and reflections until tomorrow – or maybe 12:01am. Damn, the Inauguration seems like a decade ago, but I guess that’s what happens when you get busy livin.
It’s been a hell of a year, and the word Change is looking like a careworn ragdoll after the year I’ve had with it. I left my contractor job, am nearing the finish line on a pilot, have new roommates, helped launch a fashion line, built 3 different websites, helped a friend write a book and another move to DC. I’ve developed my art in new directions, reconciled with a past flame, and been blessed with new friends and creative peers.
I’m proud of all of us that are still painting, still writing, still thinking and still standing despite the job and financial markets scaring the crap out of us. I’ve stood solid with and because of some pretty incredible folks and I can’t wait to give them the credit their due in tomorrows post.
So Cheers to all the survivors, we certainly have something to tell our grandkids about.
Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.–Dale Carnegie
