I have to bow my head real quick and thank the most high for this chance to see the beginning of a new year. I’m going to take a minute and pour a little Newman’s Own balsamic vinaigrette on the ground for your boy PAUL and all the other people that didn’t get to this point. Say a rest in peace to whomever you want to and recognize that none of us have a guarantee for these days.
I have to say thank you to my girlfriend Chocolate Snowflake who had the vision to buy us a trip to Barbados before my personal financial meltdown went down. She is one of the biggest reasons that my last year was so fantastic and beautiful. Last night as we waded in the ocean after dark I saw actual flying fishes in the water. It was a surreal moment that reminded me why I have so much to thank GOD for.
Rafi and Cas are also at the top of my list because of all the work they have done to make the i.C. movement more than just an inside joke on a politician.
Terrence Elenteny is about to blow the eff up. I’m just glad that he is bringing me long for the ride.
Amadeo Sogni, Dart Adams, VeE, Candice 1969, Marvelous Mo, the Ambasador, Enigmatik, the Underwriter and all of you writers who take out the time from pursuing you passion and your craft to come to this page that I live and die over, you deserve my thanks and my recognition. Please forgive me if you don’t see your name because my memory isn’t always as thorough as my heart.
To the commenters that don’t host websites, but aggregate more blogs than I can imagine, I thank you for your time that you spend here. This page, this site, belongs to you in more ways than one. I am a truly blessed dude to have so many intelligent folks as my friends.
It all comes back to the most high who has placed us all here for something real and special. When I say special I don’t mean anything more extraordinary than doing whatever we do. To make more people, to be responsible shepherds to our communities and our planet. To love others in the true biblical sense with no eye towards karma or any method of invoicing our good deeds. To just be love. This is my promise to GOD for the new year.
