This was the year I got to be grateful and appreciate my life in ways I never could before.
I got to love people. And I got to write.
And I got to write jokes and make people laugh. And I got to write things that made people feel things.
And I got to fall in love with other people's stories.
And I got to have perspective.
And I got to see that it's okay to want what I have right now and also not want this forever.
And so I love the present. And am hopeful for the future. Which makes me feel naive and yet I know the life I have and the person I am depends on it being true.
2014 is over...
I'm still an optimist.
Here are some photos involving animals-real, fake and on t-shirts and my current trip to the great state of North Carolina.
I am an optimist.
