Thought for 2003: This really seemed to be a year for people I care about. Those who truly care about me were more important to me than usual, and I was more important to those I care about, than usual. Because of both positive and negative things. But the fact that we all made it through so far is a testament to those relationships.
Hope for 2004: That circumstances allow me to stop adjusting and reacting so much and grow a bit more. Or, failing that, to grow a bit more via the adjustments and reactions. Not that I didn't grow in 2003, of course.
All these reaching hands out grabbing things. Grabbing me.
Day in day out accumulating.
I suggest you step out on your porch.
Run away my son. See it all. Oh see the world.
Oh, reach the door.
Happy new year. Healthy new year.
