despite being told over and over that the beginning of the year is somehow this immense, new time of possibility, i can’t help but remember that our western new year is an arbitrary designation of “new” and “start” and “beginning”.
we begin when we begin, and having this imposed designation, i often think, just harms us more than it helps.
but, as with most things, your mileage may vary.
that all being said, there is a certain energy that permeates the west at the new year that does propel us all forward–whether we ascribe to the imposed “new” or not.
which is a weird, random way of saying that these were my projects from last year, and these are my projects for this year.
okay, so this month–this year–has been super-rough on me (really, on all of us), so things have not moved apace the ways that i might have wanted.
that being said, this is not that kind of post: this is a collection of the bits and bobs i’ve enjoyed this year, the events that have been super-cool, and the things that need to be celebrated.
and, yeah, i realize that the first post i’ve done in forever being at almost 3(-ish)am my time is peculiar, but insomnia and depression do strange things to your brain. *hands*
this post comes in five parts.
first part the first: definitely depere starts this week, and I have been remiss in saying anything about it.
(my brain is/has been an unhappy, tumultuous place, and for some reason, art-related anything has been difficult for me to talk about? idek.)
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,100 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 35 trips to carry that many people.
