- Stunning how long
it took me to realize what I was filming. I'm so far
removed from THAT Journey and Jess and I are so
used to being friends... but as I set up the camera to
capture ringing in the new year as two families it hit
me. I'm starting Year 20 with a New Year's video much
like we did 19 years ago and that would become a
staple on this site for the better part of 2000-2010.
And you really don't need to add much more than that.
The video says it all...
- It's funny as more
time passes the connection to the beginning of this
project does indeed fade. I was far more into the
surreality of recreating the first video in 2010 for
the documentary. Life just moved so far past that.
It's very hard for me to care about my personal
journey like I once did. I just don't. I
care about my kids' journey more. Talya and I are one
unit traversing the chaos of parenthood and our focus
is squarely on them...
- ...which too will
pass. As they get older you see it start. You remember
who the hell you are/were and you tiptoe around those
thoughts. But had you told me ten years ago, this
would be the video that started the twentieth year of
the journey it would've seemed like a wildly emotional
moment. It isn't. We're all so used to this being our
relationship for over a decade. It's just nice. And
the kids loved it. They've never stayed up for
- So I guess
I should wax poetic about all that will be
accomplished this year but honestly? I just want to
get home, start the most myopic pursuit I can
handle: weight loss, and refocus. Columbus is all
things decadent and I'm ready to sign-off. LOL.
SEE YA C-BUS!
CAN'T EAT THIS SHIT ANYMORE.
I LOOK LIKE I'M 55. Need to remind
everyone who I am. That's my only goal as the new
year starts. Once I get back to that (or am on my
way) the rest will come together.
- Happy New
