It's December 18th, almost the end of the year, and almost the end of the Presence Process. Shayne is away in Vancouver right now, so I'm left here with some time to reflect, so to speak. It felt good to turn 32 this year, no particular reason, but it feels like it'll be a good year, and I actually feel stronger to turn older, proud almost.
Was out 'acting my age', appropriately until 5:30am this morning (getting older and not drinking do not have any bearing on staying out until the wee hours playing crazy games). It was Daniel & Ryan's annual Christmas party which is always a blast, and always a very, very late night. Our traditional, and painful, party game normally doesn't even begin until round about 3am, when most of the guests have gone home.
This happened on Halloween too. Before heading to Lee's Palace, I followed some friends to a house party being hosted by the cousin of my friend's colleague, totally random right? Turns out the 'cousin' (host of the party) is the best friend of an old friend of mine. We had an evening of beers together a year ago, and of course, his friend (my old friend) was also there, along with another guy we had hung out with over 6 years ago. There are random reunions happening everywhere to me these days, it's amazing.
Anyway, this new year will be starting off with a detox (I have never done one before), singing lessons (already paid for by Shayne, loves) and a 12 week creative process workshop. All I need to buckle down with after all of this, is my cello. We've been apart too long!
