2010 was tough all over. We know that. Mortality sucks, life is hard, and all the rest.
But something has changed in here. Even though this date is, technically, just an arbitrary accident of history, it's a good one. A happy accident.
I don't know if this year will be any better than the last one, but I like this gentler sense of life I've woken up with. It leaves more room for hope.
Now there's a New Year resolution I hadn't even imagined: keep this inward gentleness. Leave more room for hope.
Yeah. I like that.
