December 31, 2008. I know I often go on about the ridiculously fast passage of time, but COME ON! It's going to be 2009 in just a small bit of time. How is that possible?
It's been an interesting year. I've learned a great deal about myself and I've discovered a heretofore unknown world of carnal pleasures. How bad can that be? I quit a shit job and have had some weeks off to recoup. Again, that's a good thing. I made new friends this year whom I hope to have with me for a very long time. Who could complain about that? In Steve I have a wonderful husband who truly gets me. That's an ideal situation, no? All in all, 2008 has been very kind to me and I send my thanks to the universe for whatever alignment of the stars brought the people I love to me and kept them there in my life.
So, while I'm not necessarily sad to see 2008 end, I'm certainly not in a particular hurry for it to go.
Yesterday evening I stepped out onto the deck and looked up to see a gorgeously bright crescent moon and star in the darkening sky. I ran to get my camera even though I knew I could never really capture the bright, sharp lines of the moon. Instead I got this study in beautiful, deep blues and what looks to me like two little jack rabbits hopping across the sky.
So, Happy New Year, everyone.
