Tallahassee, FL – December 31, 2012
One more trip around the sun. A spin around a star. 360 degrees in 365 days. Then a countdown. 9, 8, 7. Champagne fills glasses. kazoos fall silent. 6, 5, 4. The world breathes one mighty breath. 3, 2, 1. Boom. A ball drops. Strangers kiss strangers. Confetti soars. kazoos roar. Champagne disappears. Resolutions form.
But my favorite tradition has always been to hug everyone in the room and thank them for being part of my life, only the room felt empty this year, empty of all the people I’ve met from the Angle down, empty of everyone who sent me a message, gave me advice, or wished me luck, empty of anyone reading this, anyone who inspired me to go, who taught me to leap.
Good thing I keep you all in my heart.
Happy New Year, thank you for being part of my life.
