The year 2013 has been more than a roller coaster ride. There were highs and lows, loops, beginnings and of course endings. I met new people, made new friends and old friendships became stronger. New gifts were given and received. New songs were added to the playlist and there were also reminiscing of old ones. New books were read and new poetry were written and shared (and some were just kept to myself). New paintings were painted and new photographs were taken. New places were visited and old places revisited. Old problems solved and new ones came up. There were new ‘hellos’ and a few ‘goodbyes’ and yet, there were still few goodbyes that need to be said. Memory jar was filled with good things including butterfly-in-the-stomach moments with a crush and just a simple “oh yeah!” moment. Overall, I can say that it had been one fine year. Looking forward to the new year ahead and to new discoveries (place, food, hobby, self, etc.) that will be made. Goodbye 2013. Goodbye to all the heartache, headache, pocketache and every other kind of aches there are. Let me end with a line from the song of Oasis,
“She knows it’s too late as she’s walking on by
My soul slides away
But don’t look back in anger
I heard you say.”
Whatever 2013 has brought, don’t look back in anger but with love, just love.
