It's about 1 hour and 15 minutes away from midnight on December 31 of 2009. The year is about to finish here in our little corner of the world, and a whole fresh new year is about to begin. In my head I've conjured up a list of potential accomplishments for the year ahead. I want to: Learn. Go places. See the world. Love. Connect. Do things I've never done before. Listen. Finish what I start. Conquer a fear. Clear my head. Be well.
I wish all of that for all of you, and so much more. Let's go!
This sign is on the side door of the building where my dentist has his office. The building is mostly empty -- the doctors who owned the building were sued and moved out, taking much of the traffic with them. (This is the same building where this other memorable picture was taken.) The hallways echo and the glass doors into the office spaces are dark. I can imagine being a bird, trapped and alone, fluttering down the dimly lit corridors. So, if you go there, please. Keep this door closed.
