Bonsoir, mes chês lecteurs. Its been a long year, a year of progress and transition, change, joy, pain, and ultimately, growing. I'm not the same person I was a year ago, yet I'm still me. I still walk forward, tall and proud, undefeated, even though I came close to the ground. For those who walk the path this life lays before us with me, thank you. You know who you are and what you mean to me. That I have never refrained from showing, never kept to myself. I hope you continue walking with me.
To those of you who worried about me, be at ease, for it takes much more to bring me to my grave. I'm still here, and this world shall not rid itself of me for very long.
Let us then, take some advantage of a tradition, and turn an otherwise meaningless moment in life into a point of reflection, and a time of celebration. We survived another year, we learned, gained, lost, enjoyed, suffered, in short, lived, through another trip around Sol. Let's make sure we survive the next.
So, on that note, and withouts further ado, mes chês lecteurs:
Onwards! The future awaits....
