Happy almost New Year!

It's almost been a month since I lasted posted. Finals were a whirlwind, packing up my room and leaving Atlanta were also stressful. I won't be back there for the next 8 months. I still haven't fully realized that. Trust me, when I get out of the shock, I will be ecstatic.
It's been so nice to be in San Francisco. I was thinking how some of my friends have to fly back home to little villages in various states, and it's probably snowing there now too. I get to fly back to San Francisco. Lucky me. The city is especially beautiful at Christmast time.
The after Christmas sales have been great! I bought a lovely coat for Switzerland. Yes, Switzerland. I'll be there for the next semester. I haven't fully realized the full scope of what this means too. I've been procrastinating about studying French and preparing for the trip. I'll probably be mercilessily reading everything I can on Europe a week before the trip. Okay, I can't believe I AM going to EUROPE!!

Anyway, hope everyone has a wonderful time ringing in the New Year!

End scene.
rustling of paper,
Silent breathing,
audience waiting.

Placid sea.
Glass freezing the world beneath,
and reflecting the stalling world above.
A fine, horizontal line,
no zig-zag in sight.

The past and a future exist,
Present must be created,
"Wake up destiny,
Roll the dice."

It's not CandyLand,
but passing "Go" would be nice.
Maybe buy a red card,
build a green house.

No one ever thinks
the silver thimble gets pricked.
Therein lies its suffering.
Pain--a gift,
stimulating the heart,
pumping the veins,
revealing the real human.

Crimson curtains open.
