10987654321Happy New Year!

Am I ready? No, but I never am. I never feel  like moving forward on the last day of the year. I have always been that way. I have a cassette filled with all my thoughts and feelings on New Years eve 1980. I was eight years old and would sneak away from the party to record my morose little thoughts about life on cassette.  How another year means we are getting older and closer to death...ugh! The background is filled with music, people laughing and talking, having a good time. But there I was having a real hard time with change and moving out of the '70s.

Today I went on a small hike and hung out with peacocks at Mayfield Park. It's just what I needed on the last day of the year but didn't know it.  I still have mild tendencies towards nostalgia and melancholy on the 31st but the hike cheered me up. Auntie Mame and The Apartment are two movies I'll watch tonight and I have a lemon and herb roasted chicken in the oven...stuffing and veggies because I still can't bring myself to leave the house to celebrate NYE. January 1st is always a wonderful morning though, I have always loved it, clean slate. I always wonder why I was so freaked out the night before. Happy New Year!!!

Hello you (is that you?)! I also suffer somewhat from old year nostalgia, but it's the new one already here, and I made it:)! Happy 2011!

Hi Francesca! yep, it's me. It turned out to not be so bad. Our dinner came out super yuums again too. Turning 40 this year and maybe that means I have more hits than misses :> xoxoxo

I feel exactly the same way on the last day of the year. Endings. New beginnings. It all gives me a headache. Lovely photos!

Gosh, I guess I just don't think too much about it. It feels like any other day to me except there's a big party at the end of it, haha! I guess I'm not really the sentimental type though.

What a lovely hike, seems like a perfect way to have closed out the year and you look lovely too :)

Thank you, Missa.

I don't think it's sentimentality so much as just resistant to change or a control issue. In any case I'd like not to be that way and working towards it just being another day with a party! I like that because you just continue.
