"i gotta keep my balance"

the song: "Tightrope"* Janelle Monae

Hello hello! Long time no see. I hope everyone had a merry and bright holiday. While I was visiting family, the same question came up more than once:

"Are you going to keep blogging?"

*Sigh* I have been so neglectful of this little space on the internet as of late. I blame Facebook. I knew there was a reason I avoided it for so long. My posts have become fewer and further between since I joined in July. My words don't flow like they used to. I'm too busy now thinking of short and witty comments, it seems. So...right now, this very minute, I resolve to stop thinking in status updates in 2011. I want to get back to writing and creating and celebrating. Expect more words from me next year. 
My 2010 has been a year of big changes, overwhelming gratitude, admiration, and self reflection. It hasn't all been pretty. Some of it has been downright confusing. But overall it has been a great year for me. 

Last year, I resolved to be fearless. This year, I hope to find balance. Balance between noise and quiet. Happiness at home or on an adventure. I want to welcome whatever life may bring next with poise and resolve. Whether I'm high or low.

2011, I look forward to meeting you. We'll have some good times together.


* "Tightrope" is my #3 song of the year! If you haven't heard it, you really should.


  1. I think that's a great resolution! I'd wish you luck, but I know don't need it... 2011 is bound to be an awesome year for you. And PLEASE, yes keep blogging.

  2. Thanks for the support, Erin. And for helping make my first hours of 2011 happy! :)
