I'm having 2010 be the start of a new era for myself. I will be going to Thailand! Singapore! Australia! Beautiful SoCal! JAMAICA (new tournament, The Mojo 6 being held in Montego Bay!!!!)! Mexico! And that is all taking place from mid-Feb to the first few days of May. I know it sounds insane, but I seem to feel at home in airports, on airplanes, and single rooms, with a king bed, of course. I know I am one of the blessed ones to have the opportunity to have pages added to my passport every couple of years, and I plan on making 2010 the best year yet!
Last year I rode elephants and camels, ziplined across concrete, visited temples, cathedrals, and ancient ruins. I hosted clinics, danced the night away on the tops of bars, went to amusement parks in foreign countries. I saw my first NHL hockey game (go Rangers, though the Sharks are my team), traipsed about on the beaches of the Middle East, and jumped in pools.
I went to a few concerts (Jason Mraz in Singapore was the shiznit, undoubtedly), partied like a rock star, sang like a diva (in my opinion, anyway), as well as sat and meditated in parks, and met countless people, with a select few that have truly inspired me. I've watched some incredible sunrises, ones that have welcomed the world to a new light, as well as some amazing sunsets, where the end of something beautiful and awe-inspiring just means the moon shall rise on the other side.
2010 will be a year to remember, indeed, and I can not wait. As Charles Muntz said in the Disney Pixar movie, UP, "Adventure is out there!"
