And so 2004 ended, with possibly the most random event of my life. After spending most of the evening in my room, I decided on a whim to talk a walk to the local park. There I stood, arms outstretched, head held back to face the sky, as the moon moved out from behind a cloud and Big Ben chimed in my earphones. Afterwards I strolled home, enjoying the solitude, while fireworks exploded all around me. The tranquillity of that moment is with me still and I feel at peace for the first time in ages. A great end to a terrible day, but overall a fairly positive year.
Here’s to 2005.
