ch-ch-ch-changes
Most new years start out feeling pretty much the same as the last, and I feel like we try to place this artificial sense of renewal on it. But for some reason, this year really feels different. Perhaps because I spent the weekend of New Year's with a new(ish) group of people (yay for swing dancing in Asheville!), then moseyed on to Atlanta where I spent a short visit with Amanda talking a lot about new beginnings and life changes, and now get to spend the rest of the week with family in FL. It just feels like a clean break from the last year. Things will most likely go back to feeling the same way all over again, but that's not necessarily bad. Changes these days are so gradual that I can only see them from some distance. Jim once told me that from age 20 to 25, we change as much as we do from 15 to 20, and that after that things slow down a bit; we congeal a little more. So maybe since I'm at the 26 year mark, things will slow down a bit? Not if the first week on 2006 has anything to say about it...
