Happy New Year!

There has been so much I’ve left unsaid these last few years.  Good stuff.  Awesome stuff.  Sad stuff.  Bad stuff.  Angsty stuff that I have been too [many words could fit in this space] to talk about.  2014 has been a year of ups and downs.  Big ups and big downs.  There are a few bright and sunny spots that stand out to me.  People who lit up my world from the moment they entered it, huge accomplishments in business, new things that have sparked my interest, and some plain old darn good times.  But the flip side has been some crushing disappointments and setbacks, and I have to say to 2014, “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

A few months ago, I sat around with some of my artist friends, a bunch of “horse people” and we talked about how we all thought 2014 was going to be amazing for us because it was the Year of the Horse.  Should be our year, right?  And yet, it pretty much sucked, across the board, for everyone.  Illness, loss, moving, family troubles, this wasn’t what we’d hoped for.  I surmised that The Year of the Horse was only going to get awesome right at the end, that it was just going to be the kickoff for all the good stuff yet to come.  And you know what, I think that just might be the case.  :-)  May the bright and sunny things that have sparked in the last few months turn into awesome things in the coming year.

I know, I’m vague.  When I’ve neglected to say so many things, I don’t even know where to start.  I’ll try to do better.
