Thoughts on 2004

First of all....Wow. This is it. The last day of 2004. What a year.
Elections, Olympics, on going wars...There are so many things I could talk about.

I could talk about how these things affected my life.

The year that was 2004 can be summarized as a rollercoaster. Now some may say - can't every year be classified as this? Sure but I would say this last year, I personally have felt the highest highs of emotion that you can feel...felt loved and cherished and wanted and needed...to the darkest depths where everything seemed to be systematically falling apart.

Some of the biggest highs I felt this year are due to friends. I had the privledge of going to two weddings in 2004, and being a bridesmaid in one.
The weddings were as different as night and day -
one took place in Las Vegas - in a beautiful chapel in a medieval Castle. There was jousting and I must say very cute Knights to look at (hehehehe) There was also the feeling of love there - because of those who made the trip and the camaraderie that was shared. My friends who got married here are so in love and I was and am proud that I got to stand by them and witness this event.

Thank you for having me Christie and Justin Wells - My friends always.

The second wedding took place in Newhaven, UK - I traveled over 3500 miles to see another friend get married. Again I was proud to be invited. My friend here had a traditional ceremony, in a church...very very pretty church set on a hill. With this wedding, I felt included as part of his extended family, which still warms my heart. This new family I wish the best as always - they are my UK family :)

Thanks you for sharing the beginning of your new life with me Kevan and Marie Chaplin. May your crew always be happy.

Friends - I have more then a few. Those that I have come to count on. In 2004 , I got the opportunity to meet many of them - some seeing them for the first time. (gotta love internet buddies :) )

So I say hello to my friends that I have visited in 2004 and boy did I go places this year:
Las Vegas - February 2004
Newhaven UK - May 2004 (ok this was also Heyward's Heath, Eastbourne and Hailsham)
Brookings SD - November 2004

I shall be back to most of those places soon.

With all these amazing highs - there have to be lows to balance my life out.
And of course there were, ones I brought upon myself and have learned from.

I have found it's always very hard to get over a relationship once its gone. Especially one that you didn't want to end.

I am grateful though, because I am seeing myself in a new way. And perhaps one day, I'll be able to find the relationship that will work.

2004 ....

all in all I can't complain.

Looking forward to 2005

I see
