Another Year …

The new year is here, and really .. it’s doesn’t look or feel much different than last year.  But who knows what this year will bring.

I hope you all took the time to make a New Year’s resolution.  (Is this a North American custom only?)  Hopefully you haven’t already made and broken yours.  But if you haven’t made one yet, maybe I can help.  Try this … resolve to do something this year that you’ve never done before.  Maybe something you’ve only dreamed about, or fantasized about.  Give yourself permission!

Now I’m not suggesting you throw caution to the wind and do something that’s potentially life-altering.  Just something small but maybe something you never thought you’d have the courage to do.  And whether it goes well or not so well, the feeling of excitement will remind you that life is as exciting as you make it.

Me?  My resolution involves hard work.  I’m going to try to learn how to walk more gracefully in ballet heels!  I don’t expect to ever be able to wear them when I go to the shopping mall but being able to gracefully walk for short distances would be awesome.

Now .. I’m starting to get a little worried.  The US Inauguration Ball is just a couple weeks away and my invitation still hasn’t arrived.  New dress and new shoes are ready, and my frequent flyer points are burning a hole in my purse.  So someone .. help me out here!  I promise to be a perfect lady and someone you’d be happy to be seen with. 🙂

Ohhhh .. it’s not that I’m a fan of the guy who the big party is for … on the contrary, actually.  It just seems like it might be a good party for someone like me.

Let’s just see how liberal-minded those people really are!



PS .. and for those of you who are familiar with my circle of friends .. I recently got an email from my favorite Toronto girl who is now living in Argentina.  Micheala is doing just fine and she’s just as sweet as she always was.  I think I need to ask her for a new photo to see what changes the South American lifestyle has inspired.  It’s always a pleasure to hear from her.

Website Update and Michaela

Well .. I’m back to doing weekly updates to my Photo Gallery again! I just published one, have three “in the can” and have ideas for many others. In a couple of the photo sets I’m wearing something more formal; in the third I’m wearing latex.

My friend Michaela has moved to Buenos Aries. Many of you knew her as “Hailleigh”, formerly of Toronto. We correspond regularly and she seems to be adjusting to the new culture. And the culture that she describes is quite different. It sounds quite scary to me but Michaela has a lot more courage than I do.

I wish her well, and know she’ll succeed there but I can’t help but worry about her.
