Since it seems to be de rigeur for the last day of the year, I am following along like a lemming (into shi.ny.met.al.box.es) looking retrospectively like a good documentarian.
My recap of 2009, by season.
- Last Winter, I kicked off the story of Tessa’s reunion (well, union, actually) with her first father, Joe.
- In the Spring, we got a visit from Cassandra, when Burrito and Tamale were just the size of blueberries, as she told my children. I got to see her again a few months later closer to her ‘hood.
- The Summer brought my husband’s accident, as well as my shortest post ever (5 words) and an entry that amused me when I needed amusing, The Brady Crunch.
- In the Fall I hosted my first bloggy book tour on a book called The Primal Wound. It was exhilarating, illuminating, and exhausting.
So farewell, 2009. Thanks for a fantastic year of love and laughter, of wounding and healing, of solitude and togetherness. I will remember you fondly.
