A Christmas present for Ducky after a roller coaster year. I’m so glad We had each other!
Ducky: It’s a fuzzy duck.
Ducky: Like me.
Ducky: It’s soft and fluffy. I’m going to destroy it in about three minutes.
Ducky: And that’s ok?
Me: Does it make you happy?
Me: Then it’s ok.
Me: I won it for you in Disneyland.
Ducky: You were there a long time ago. And you were having fun with friends. You were thinking about me?
Me: Of course.You’re my best buddy.
Ducky: Thanks, Daddy.
Me: It was a really bad year, Ducky.
Ducky: I know, Daddy.
Me: But in the middle of that bad year I had one of the happiest times of my life.
Ducky: You were happy when you were there.
Me: And during the worst year of my life, you were always there for me.
Ducky: You’re my Daddy. It’s what I do.
Me: So I wanted something to connect the two as we head into 2011, you and me.
Ducky: Sounds nice. Shows that even in the darkest times, things can bring us happiness if we let them.
Me: Thanks, Duck. For everything.
Ducky: I can still continue destroying it, can’t I?
Me: Of course. We are who we are.
Ducky: Thanks, Daddy. I love you. Merry Christmas.
Me: I love you too, Ducky. Merry Christmas.
A New Video.
2010 was not the best year in my life. Here I capture the essence of the year in film.
Happy New Year, Everyone!
Before a new chapter is begun, the old one has to be finished: tell yourself that what has passed will never come back. Remember that there was a time when you could live without that thing or that person – nothing is irreplaceable, a habit is not a need. This may sound so obvious, it may even be difficult, but it is very important.
Closing cycles. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because that no longer fits your life.
It’s 2011 in New Zealand. This year is over!
It was August 3rd when I started this blog. I didn’t know what it was going to be. All that I knew was that I desperately needed to find a little island of creativity and freedom to provide me some respite from what was turning out to be the worst year of my life. Little did I know that the year would soon get even worse, and little did I know how important tumblr would become to me.
