(c) j.h. 2011
the truth is. i have changed more in the past year than maybe my entire life. not physically. i mean, well, that too. yes, my hair is much shorter, i weigh a baby less, i live in a new town, i have two daughters instead of one, and i have a million more wrinkles.
but my soul has changed. my core. i wish there was time to write about how in one blog post. no. actually i don't. i'll save it for later. 2012 is going to be big. you just wait.
instead, i'll sum up the past year with one word: defining.
no deep meaning or vaingloriousness intended. but to the person who sent me the message below: no i don't think i'm wise. i'm lazy. period. the end.
"one day, if you're lucky, people are going to hate you as much as they love you."
my most awesome blog-hate mail yet:
"Maybe you will blog about how smart and honest and perfect you are. Maybe you will just stick to your usual arrogant tone and write about ... how you are a living angel destined to be translated to heaven. the end. (I got that from you...and I didn't forget to capitalize. I think its cool. My trademark.) You are not clever. You are not funny. And you have some of the worst taste and poorest judgment when it comes to general propriety in what you write in a public forum. Step down from your high horse. Stop pretending you are Walt Whitman or Hemingway."
