And art played a important role too– many things I couldnt reveal in words came out through swirls of ink and paint. I shared rather little bit of it– recalling through my instagram feed I can see the different events the year unfolding (even if they remain in a sort of code).

I likewise feel joy, due to the fact that of the terrific individuals I am surrounded by, and immensely fortunate about the many methods which my life is great.
Who understands what 2019 will hold (and theres so much that could be said about that, politically speaking!) however I feel ready to take it on. Or prepared as Ill ever be. And that, my friends, is enough.
So … why blog site at all? What can I share? Well, 2018 was a crunch year for me. A year of crisis in some ways however likewise of rebirth. Ive experienced things this year that I never want to experience again. Feelings, characteristics and situations that have been constructing for years lastly erupted, changing the landscape permanently. And it was hard. Truly, truly hard.
Pleased New Year!
