To 2015

This year—well, then.

2014 led me to remarkable creative progress, to new friendships, to fascinating possibilities. In the face of all this, though, I’ve experienced losses—astounding, crushing losses—that I could never have predicted. Truth stuffed with illusion. Goodbyes I never thought I would have to say. Answers I will never find.

Through everything, my creative voice has remained. Even when all I wanted was to give up, to let myself drown in the metaphorical flood, it has refused to run. After decades of struggle, I have finally learned to listen to it no matter what. That voice, that creative power, has saved me every time.

I won’t find what I need “out there.”
It’s been here all along.

It will be a hard year. I know this in my bones. But it will also be a beautiful year. I know this, too, in my bones.

Here is to 2015.
Here is to making the best art that we can out of the wreckage.
