068: ELEVEN DAYS

It occurs to me that there are only a handful of days left in this year. What a frightening thought, to suddenly be in the last couple of weeks of a year that has seemed like such an extensive journey.

I've been getting kinda reflective as I do towards this end of the year. Thinking about what kind of year it has been.

I think of my years as chapters in a book.
Each chapter has it's own distinctive flavour and feel. Each one with it's own themes and characters which come and go, live and die.

2005 has been a year of great achievements and devastating losses for me. When I tally it all up, they all seem to even themselves out.
I'm sure I've taken an emotional beating, but I've also gotten myself a stable job in which I'm moderately successful.

It's all been about the status quo, maintaining stability following the disastrous events of last year. I'm thankful for the boredom sometimes.

The last few days of this year will undoubtedly prove strange and bittersweet as this rollercoaster of a year brings itself to a (surprising) conclusion.
the end

A handful of days indeed, and it makes everyone more reflective on their year, what they have and haven't accomplished. It's always good to end on a positive note, it sets a precedence for the new year I think... or something clever like that. I think 2006 will be a marvellous year for you, I can't see why not, you are looking forward and that's always good. I look forward to our continued friendship, and many more rants on everything... namely, the next Serenity movie, and why Joss should get off his ass and write the Spike Movie already! kisses ...
