a new day, a fresh start.

I love New Year's. I am so typically enthralled with the idea of a clean slate. It's exciting, and rejuvenating. No matter how much stress I am under, no matter what challenges we face, I somehow feel like the insurmountable becomes possible, and all is right in the world, albeit briefly. The only comparison I can come up with, is that feeling that you get on the first day following a horrible cold. As one of my friends puts it, you feel week, and shaky, and tired as hell, but your fever is gone, you can taste your food again, and anything in the world seems possible. That's New Year's to me, the first day after a horrible cold. Wow, that makes my life sound incredibly exciting, doesn't it?? Well, I was never one for appropriate analogies, so just bear with me.

So, this is my blog. My fresh start. Me, slowly revealed, days, weeks, months at a time, in my rambling, sporadic, quirky, and sarcastics ways. Here's to the New Year, may it be better than a bad cold!
