When I opened up the Christmas card that arrived from Holly, it read, "I know things have been difficult this year, but I'm glad we're friends. Here's to a great new year." Well no shit. 2006 has been anything but banal. Difficult? Yes. Exciting? Yes. Tiring? Yes.

There was something about that Christmas card, something that led a sense of finality to the year and to my relationship with Holly. But as one door closes, another one opens.

Here's to a great new year indeed.
