2014 is gone, and I couldn't even be bothered to see it leave.
I'm not gonna say 2014 was the worst year, ever, that isn't true. But it sure felt like all we did this year was break even or keep our heads above water.There were some good. my mom got the foot surgery she so badly needed to stay on her feet, we have two lovely healthy calves, we got the new kitchen up and started. But we setbacks. The one cow we've been trying to get bred won't bred, and the vet finally told us he thought she was a lost cause. The rabbits are stressing me greatly with their healthy and breeding. We need to get the shop cranking up more. Ling to replace, here, there, unexpected expenses. The bull we bought died. It goes on and on, little thing like that.
It was a depressing year death wise too (thankfully for me none close, but). For artist and entertainers. For equality and right. And for death of the trust and respect some of those people commanded before their true self came to light. Death of the people my parents called friends growing up, 4 or 5 in a row. One could argue this was the year of many little deaths.
I never really found a gear work wise with my craft this year, and that is depressing me. I haven't been as motivated to DO what I need to do, which is a poor excuse not to do it. But a covente one if you're looking for one.
Perhaps it's fitting then that we spent the last month of 2014 locked in to clouds and sick. Not the flu, but damn it, I hope this isn't going to be a tradition of me spending Dec 26th in bed sick and puking. Thankfully I was the only one who got that, everyone one else just got achy and tired and choughs.
I will probably do my yearly "the year in photos" blog in a few days.
Any way, 2015... Just be gentle. I'm not gonna ask for the moon, not for the stars, not richs. Just enough to breath.
