Happy New Year!

Goodbye 2010.

 

...

 

Another year has come + gone. I chose this pic to welcome the new year because it's personal and somewhat vulnerable. I could not have predicted the path my life has taken this year, and although I have some vague plans for next year I am truly at the mercy of fate. I have gained confidence, strength and independence over this past year that I can actually say I am looking forward to whatever next year will bring.

 

2010 was quite a big year for me when I reflect upon it:

 

- I got divorced.

- I had my heart broken (short of being smashed to pieces). But I got through it + it has made me stronger.

- I moved to Vancouver by myself (without ever visiting the city before).

- I worked on 2 feature films.

- I had my work displayed in 5 art shows and at SDCC.

- I lived on my own for the first time.

- I traveled to San Diego, Seattle and Hawaii.

- I began roller derby training without any previous rollerskating experience.

- I broke a bone + had surgery for the first time. I was terrified but again.. I got through it + it has made me stronger.

- I met many, many amazing friends + kindred spirits whom I could not have gotten through this year in one piece without their love, support and generosity. For that I will be forever grateful.

Blackbird by The Beatles -

Blackbird singing in the dead of night

Take these broken wings and learn to fly

All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to arise

 

Black bird singing in the dead of night

Take these sunken eyes and learn to see

All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to be free

 

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly

Into the light of the dark black night

 

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly

Into the light of the dark black night

 

Blackbird singing in the dead of night

Take these broken wings and learn to fly

All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to arise

You were only waiting for this moment to arise

You were only waiting for this moment to arise

 

...

 

I am ready to fly. Welcome 2011.
