2009 was a good year, one that I will not forget for a long time. I met some of the most awesome people and had the best times with them! I had my many 'firsts' and had many opportunities to see Tokyo in numerous lights: artsy, delicious, busy, blinding, and always sublime. I had many of those subtle, poignant episodes straight from Murakami's novels. There were times when I have muttered under my breath, "good Lord, this is a good time" and hid a genuine smile of joy. Not so bad for living one whole year away from home as an expat. Thank you, thank you everyone for putting up with me a year that's for the record!
Now, 2010 makes me feel excited. I have a strong hunch it will be a very interesting year for me and for the people who will be part of it. Some magic is about to happen, right? Keep your calm, and keep the good times rollin'!
