Happy New Year!!
It’s A Wrap
Incredibly, 2005 zipped by, but not before it made some major changes to our lives and environment. From the tsunami aftermath to Katrina, we saw plenty of natural disasters – some even on home turf and although it was sad to see the devastation, it was also refreshing to see that folks can still come together to help each other. We’ll also be leaving some folks we really cared about behind in 2005 – Debbie Lavonne Fulton, Frankie, Andres and Isabela, just to name a few. In addition some folks who were like family also passed-on, such as Luther Vandross, Richard Pryor and Ann Bancroft who left a permanent mark in our souls through their art. Of course 2005 had it’s incredibly beautiful moments – like the birth of Daylen, the BBC’s trip to DC in July and yes, even my foray into the “serious” dating scene. All in all, those of us lucky enough to be reading this today recognize that storms bring about life-altering changes – sometimes necessary changes; relationships teach us as much about ourselves as they do about someone else; and that no problem is as permanent as a solution. We’ve LIVED an incredible year. Let’s use the final hours of this year to review what we did well, what sucked and what we’re striving for in 2006. No, you probably won’t keep to all your new year’s resolutions, but you sure as heck can add those important references you’ve developed to that resume – including your life resume. Now, let’s take a deep breath, smile at the prospect of another chance and step into 2006! Happy New Year!!
