Happy New Year!
This year has been one of great change and upheaval for me. I have connected with old friends and made many new ones whom I now count among my closest. From the downs of the loss of my job due to layoffs, to the ups of finding (with a friend’s help) gainful employment. The severing of bonds with people from my past whose worldview I no longer share to being embraced by a community that understands and accepts my new way of life. The darkness of the Bush administration finally falling, however a new battle in civil rights is lost on the same night. This will be a year to remember.
Tonight I just want to say I love all my friends new and old, and my family despite our differences. I wish to you and yours a safe and happy new year.
