My dear friends:
2011 has been an incredible year.
I am so thankful for the encouragement and generosity of the people who have joined me along this journey. It’s been a whirlwind of accolades, publications, performances and parties. I can hardly believe the good luck and good fortune I’ve had, and how well all the hard work I’ve been putting into my endeavours has paid off.
There were some medical scares and some new scars, as well as some disappointments, but I am stronger and healthier for it.
(And I promise, if there is a next time, I will call someone instead of being all stoic and go to the hospital alone. You can all stop scolding me now. ^_^ )
I have made new friends, and new business colleagues, and have had the great pleasure of strengthening my connections with long-time friends as well.
Your support, friendship, love, advice, and when needed, smack-downs, have all been cherished.
So, from me and mine to you and yours,
I wish you all the best of the holiday season,
and a wonderful 2012!
Yes, that is indeed a picture of me dressed as a Christmas present for a kickline.
Enjoy the laugh.
We even had candycane-striped stockings. ^_^
