Pardon this post, but the New Year provokes one to reflect a bit.
When I started this blog almost three years ago, I had no idea what it'd become. I was looking for a creative outlet where I could do a bit of writing. I had no idea I'd start taking photos.
My plan was to tell stories about this wonderful and frustrating city. My biggest worry was running out of things to say, and part of me wanted to parcel out tidbits so there'd always be something in reserve.
Boy, was I surprised to find that content hasn't been a problem. Things happen. Things change. There is always something new.
Oh and I must mention the biggest surprise of all, that of 'meeting' and befriending so many people from all over the world. We are so fortunate in this age of the internet to traverse immense distances and find commonality despite differences in language and culture. We can unite simply on a human level and do so every day.
I no longer have a fearful outlook anymore. There is just so much richness in the world around us. All you have to do is open your eyes and look.
Happy New Year's Eve, everyone! Here's to 2010 and all the stories it has to bring.
