I figured I’d set something down for the last day of 2004. Not a banner year for everyone I’ve talked to – there have been personal tragedies, work agonies, political pain, and natural disasters. But we’ve all survived to fight another year, and I’m grateful for that.
Anastasia and I got sick a few days ago, so we’re ringing in the New Year from our couch, toasting with TheraFlu. We found it oddly fitting that this should be so.
Anyway, my heart goes out to all my friends and relatives. I hope you have a New Year without peer, and that 2005 brings you infinite joy.
Bye, bye 2004! See you on the other side…
