I started, scrapped, re-imagined and totally butchered a "Year in Review" post. Too much on my plate to do it properly. Too much imagination dedicated to other pursuits. Too much bullshit in Aught Six to want to re-live again. The point of my 2K maudlin words was that even though this has been one of the most difficult years of my life, I have also had a handful of experiences that will never be topped. Equaled perhaps, but not beaten.
Thank you to all my friends who keep track of my daily life on here and for your frequent support and exhortations. Thank you to all the friends I've made because of this TGOD. Your presence, generosity and humor is inspiring. Thank you to the random readers who've stopped by here with words of sympathy and helped to prop me up with your own tales of heartbreak and recovery. And thank you to the lurkers. I know you're there and I appreciate the visits.
I'm more than happy to put this year behind me. And if I'm not entirely healed, I'm in a better place than I could have dreamed 11 months ago. For that, I owe many of you a deep debt of gratitude. As the band warms up for Auld Lang Syne, the changing of the calendar will be more than symbolic for me. It's a new chapter, one with fresh opportunity and endless possibilities. I'm looking forward to tackling a new outlet, continuing to build my relationship with AJ and check-raising my first douchebag of '07.
Things are gonna be different around these parts. Greater, one hopes. And I wish the same for all of you out there in Blogland.
