As it is a holiday, it stirs the retrospective junky in me. This has been a helluva year so far, for so many different reasons. So here are my thanks:
For my friends, new and old, who’ve helped me to laugh and cry with them, as appropriate; for those once near who are far, know I love you, even if I’m terrible at regular correspondence. My deepest thanks for all of your love and support. I couldn’t do any of this (and I mean any of this) without you guys.
For my family, who never stopped believing in me, despite me following whatever wind caught my fancy, and the resulting periods of severe self doubt that inevitably followed.
For my day job and my health; if it weren’t for the one, the other might have remained out of reach.
And finally for chaos. Sometimes I feel like I can see what the rest of my life is going to be like, but then chaos intervenes and changes everything. Changes me. And I wouldn’t trade this life, the ups and the downs and the valleys in between, for anything.
To all the agents of chaos out there (you know who you are),
All of my love and affection –
