the recurring themes of 2008

Paper dolls for Matilda

Paper dolls for Matilda

On this, the last day of 2008, I reflect on themes, things, and events that made the year what it was. It was quite a year.

And so the themes:

paper dolls
going analog, relying less on digital
old-fashioned undergarments (slips, garter belts, old lady panties)
falling in love
overcoming grief
learning to let go
becoming more competent in the kitchen
washing dishes
patience
longer hair
filling the holes in my music collection
laughing with joy
training a dog
Baltimore
turning my blacks, browns, and greys into oranges, blues, and pinks
financial insecurity
deviled eggs
skirts and cardigans
DJing
text messages
Budapest
being alone

Some themes I think look promising for 2009:

drums
quilts
Peter Pan collars
dinner parties
going back to school?
happiness
