“For my crews bomb, where my peoples still at
If they call me and I don't call back
For weeks at a time, love is still intact
Let's be big about it, and realize the fact”
Q-Tip, The Love
So it’s a new year for us all, and a new beginning for me. Well, I suppose that the beginning is six weeks old, but the shine certainly hasn’t come off of my new life. Sometimes the glimmer is blinding (and by blinding, I mean confusing).
I digress... Apologize to all of you. I’ve been neglectful in contacting all of you. I have stories, but small ones, little dramas and comedies (sadly no action flicks) that bloom and fade. Regretfully, the details also fade. Regardless, here’s a little update, for all of you who are curious.
Vancouver is good, and thawing, very wetly, after the heaviest snowfall in years. In fact, it appears that this Christmas saw the highest amount of snow on the ground in recorded history.
It was a good, though untraditional Christmas. Being newly moved I didn’t have much money to spend on extravagant Christmas gifts. So, I spent modestly, and gave a few small (hopefully thoughtful) things. Here’s a shot of the Christmas tree (Nas' first!), with its little nest of gifts.
Nas and I spent the holidays largely snowed in in my new apartment. In previous years, she would have had to head up to her place on the hill, where her parents are. Those road conditions coupled with the steep hills have redefined treacherous for me. At first it was a little nerve wracking going up and down to her parents place. But I soon grew accustomed to the slight sliding and the jolt as the wheels caught traction.
Nas and I built a six-foot tall snowman on Christmas day, and then had dinner with her parents.
That weekend we attended a Bollywood themed wedding in Stanley Park. The wedding was okay, but the view of downtown from the park is beautiful. New Year’s was okay too, but I surely would have had more fun at Dan’s with all of you.
Anyway, that the short version of what’s been going on. I’ll try and everything better updated.
Take care, talk soon.
