2013 was—well, it still is, but you what I mean—a momentous year for me: my little brother traveled to the Summerlands, I said “Enough!” to someone who played me (and others) for way too long, I published AlmaMia Cienfuegos and Other Stories (and plan to publish Thorn in Red in a few days), I made three great friends, I got engaged to the Piano Man with the sexy legs and even sexier heart…
But I didn’t finish a task that holds a lot of importance for me. In fact, I barely started it. I wanted reread my entire blog. When I shared this desire with you, several times in 2012, I said that I was planning to redo tags and edit my old posts a bit. But there is much more to it than that… It would be nice to fix lurking typos and have clear categories (particularly now that the Blogger search box refuses to work for me), but what I really want is to go back and say hello to the witchy writer woman who started blogging in 2009.
I want to watch myself evolve through the posts—I’ve grown quite a bit, my Wicked Luvs, and I wish to see when and where the changes started. My writing voice has claimed itself, I react to life’s issues in different ways, my worldview has become more fluid (maybe I’m getting older, wiser and sexier?), I developed a considerable amount of patience, I understand my witchy heart much better; my beauty, my intelligence, my hotness and my ginormous modesty still know no boundaries… *grin, my Luvs; I mean it, grin, it feels so freaking good*
So for this coming year, I predict a lot of self-assessment; perhaps some laughter, too. I’ve noticed that when I look back, I have to laugh at some of the ridiculous things I did. But what can I say? They did seem hugely important and brilliant when they happened, didn’t they? I hope you are here for the exploration. It would be grand if you decided to embark in a bit of self-probing *tee-hee* yourself. We could make it into a party! Guess we’ll see…
What—if anything—are you carrying over to 2014, my Wicked Luvs?
I really love this picture.
I like how my left foot is a blur, but some of its toenails are still clear.
I live for little miracles… ;-)
