2013 project

“The life of clouds is a life of farewell and a life of reunions; tears and laughter.”

Kahlil Gibran

2013 and this new blog will be an homage to the amazing faces and places that have left an indelible mark on my life. Inauspiciously, in 2012, I lost a majority of my photos, including the ones from this past summer (*palm on forehead d’oh*), my old blog, anddd…more or less all traces of tangible memories I had held dear. Therefore, in my attempt to bring my family and friends closer (!!open arms!!) by opening up (::shudder::), while incorporating three of my new year’s resolutions:

III. Read one book per week (52 books this year)

IV. Sketch one drawing per day (365 sketches this year) As many as possible. (I underestimated how time consuming this would be)

V. Write one journal entry or blog per week (52 entries this year)
