New Year’s Eve

Lindsay and I had a fabulous New Year’s Eve. We stayed at our aunt’s house in Portland and went out for martinis and dancing with Lindsay’s friends. I had an unexpected romantic interlude with a beautiful amazing person. Little romances keep me on my toes; they remind me that the world is full of spontaneity and beauty and if you are open to it sparkles will eventually come, even if just a glimmer in passing. I read this from a book today: “you can travel around the world with your heart completely open and no one can hurt you. You can say, ‘I love you,’ without fear of being ridiculed or rejected…. You can say yes, or you can say no—whatever you choose—without guilt or self-judgment. You can choose to follow your heart always.” These moments remind me to not get attached, to know that what is beautiful is free and often fleeting. I feel alive and happy whether or not I see her again. The picture of Lindsay (my sister) below is out of focus, but I love it because she is so beautiful, and the picture looks really similar to one of her in fifth grade.
