I don't really like rollercoasters- I can ride them and do, and survive - but I am not really "into" rollercoasters.
2009 was one hell of a rollercoaster ride. Steep highs and lows. sharp curves. screams of despair and delight. slow steep climbs, sharp falls, redemption at the end.
At the end of the ride I am shaken and stirred and triumphant that I survived it - in one piece - none the worse for wear. Grateful for the experience. Glad that I don't have to do this particular one again, and ultimately ready for the next ride.
what a year.
