New Year

I’m lying alone in bed listening to the rain on the roof of this old hotel in Palm Springs, and I am content. 

I don’t regret 2016; I am happy it made visible a need for change. I am not afraid of the future. I work hard to craft a more peaceful one every day. 

I’m not sad anymore because I am different. I love the person I’ve grown to be, and the friends I’ve met all over the world who helped me get here. I don’t need anyone to complete me; I am whole.
I will continue to do what I do: to orbit around this pale blue rock connecting dots and documenting all aspects of humanity, and to write. I have been in an underground phase of writing and plotting this year, assembling a large body of work I will someday publish, and a project I will someday launch. I’m not in a rush.

I am ready for 2017. This year, my only resolution is just to do me.

Happy New Year, everyone. I hope you do you this year too.
