I ended up cutting out some snowflakes and putting them on the tree that I got at the beginning of the month. It’s one of those years of reflection, but each year is different because you can change your whole life if you want to!
“Change yourself and everything around you will change,” is what my first therapist said. I wanted to be a therapist 15 years ago and now I don’t. I’m just going to be an artist and a writer.
My (soon to be x) husband gave me a present. A butterfly calendar.
I will always love him and he will always be my friend I hope. We have been together 27 years and I want the best for him. But? I want the best for myself now too.
Time is of the essence after you lose all your parents. It’s something you begin to understand at my age.
I’d like to fall in love again.
I have been in love 4 times.
I gave him “Gift from the Sea” — that’s it, because this is a year of separatio & divorce.
I can do anything I want today.
Not sure what I want to do yet.
Going out to find some Christmas, walk my dog on the beach, dunno — what I want to do is start a painting and I might later! I want to read Diane Keaton’s memoir. Bought that for myself this year.
My tree looks rad! ❤
Last year I was so effing depressed but this fabster I know showed me his tree and the very fact he did one like that?
Our friendship spurs me to make art! I’m lucky!
So this year I managed the snowflakes, and it is going to get better from here on in I know. He lost his parents far earlier than I did. But when you do? Damn do you ever have to grow up.
Next year, a big and wonderful Christmas Party like the kind my mother used to throw!
I’m that, actually.
My husband didn’t want the parties.
Wishes anyone who comes by a very special and beautiful holiday!
Much love from Adrienne!
