Friendship pops up right in your face when on a solitary ramble

Understanding suddenly sparkles in thus far unresponsive eyes

And fun and laughter cosy up to you in a sudden burst of affection

Love twinkles from unlikely corners

while heartache comes to you mixed into a glass of sweet wine

A thread of kinship momentarily pulls at you from behind strangers’ faces

It was a rigorous year. Laughing really hard, running like mad till I was out of breath, bumping headlong into friends, falling flat on my face, the ground giving way beneath me and discovering suddenly…that I could fly!

Plenty happened at work…all good.
I visited a foreign country….it was a memorable experience.
Made a whole lot of new friends. Let go of some old ones. And found some long-lost ones.
I looked for love…and found something else. Or maybe not. And lost it again.
I wrote a lot. As IdeaSmith. As myself. Online. Offline. I even got paid!

And despite everything else, it was a good year. A very good year.

And now to 2006, I’ll say the single most important thing I learnt, the one thing I’ve learnt to say to everyone and everything in my life.

Thank you for happening to me. Goodbye!
