2009 in pictures
A year has passed and I have pictures to show you! These pictures do have a story to tell. I started the year no different than the preceding year. Certain things got to me. Betrayal, disloyalty, and disappointment being the negative triggers. Over this past year that mostly went away. Whether I am all scarred up or just not emotionally invloved like I used to be the result is the same. It just ain’t worth the energy. So here we go….
More Below the fold…..
More after the jump….
Just a hole in the ground.
This episode revealed that friendship is a relative term online. For some it only means access or proximity. A true friendship goes much deeper than that. I knew this and thus was not burned this time. I am happy with who I am, what I do and say. A lot of conflicts occur because one party has some sort of trust issue and imagine that others are naturally inclined to go against them. At some point they drive away anyone they already have at arms length. If you’re in that situation you have two choices: Get closer and win their confidence or brace yourself for the inevitable drama when they decide they are in need of conflict.
Times were pretty rough as I had not heard from Taryn Gartner, my SL partner, since just before Halloween. She had been seriously ill with H1N1 and then suddenly not a word. I did get one email where she informed me she was diagnosed with breast cancer and was undergoing aggressive chemotherapy. Then more silence. I finally heard from her after Christmas. The chemo is working and she’ll be done with the treaments in a few weeks. The cancer looks to be beat now! 🙂
Wishing for a better 2010.
