i know it’s still early-mid december, but i’ve been thinking a lot about the future. (and, consequently, the past.) i moved into a new apartment a month or two ago and as i was sorting through all of my accumulated stuff, i found “my hopes for 2010.” some of them happened, some of them didn’t. many of them are things i continue to desire. some of them are silly and some of them are serious. (and i am going to resist the urge to edit.) but, finding this list reminded me of where i have been and where i am going. and, no matter what, i am glad you are here with me.
more adventures. more curiosity. more exploring. more risk-taking. lots of dancing. lots of working. lots of fun. lots of new experience. lots of new friends. more letter writing. more journal writing. more doodling. more ideas. more action. more engagement. more creativity. new dances. new songs. new poems. new stories. good health. lots of laughter. lots of memories. more confidence. more embarrassment. more happiness for myself and others. more love. lots of star-gazing. lots of fashion. lots of make-up. lots of hair. more beautiful things. more accountability. more strength. more direction. more sharing.
so, with all of that said, i will vow to keep striving for all of the above. but, i also want to set one goal for myself in 2011. it is this: to show my work in new york.
lately i have felt like i’ve been on a scenic detour in the road that is my life. the last six months have been a (necessary) holding pattern and i am eager to transition into what is coming next. hopefully the thing that is coming next is balance. i’ll add that to “my hopes for 2011.” more balance.
