One day, I'll have a book of poems and an art gallery filled with my work. That is a dream.

Two thousand two will be a year for going after dreams. The last two years have been for living other people's dreams. This one, will be for mine. I already feel a surge of passion and energy welling within me. I also feel a profound love, for everyone and everything, including those who have done harm. For I have realized, without the positive and the negative, I would not be who I am today. My accomplishments and movements have been structured reactions to experiences in my life. And all of those experiences have made me who I am.

Last night, New Year's eve, I did what I wanted to do-- and I enjoyed it! And doing what you want to do and enjoying it must be one of the greatest pleasures of life. I'm ready to realize dreams.
