A year ago, i wrote this.  It was a truly wonderful day and will remain so always.  But little did I know then about the wonderful year that was ahead of me.

A year is a long time.  A melange of events occur.  But this one was special.  It was one where I experienced the whole gamut of emotions from zenith to nadir.

A high adrenaline, fist-pumping type win.

A highly satisfying pedantic experience.

The bliss one gets upon seeing alacrity in others’ faces, something that I was responsible for.

The ultimate of surprise, unexpected triumphs.

The well founded joy at having fulfilled a personal goal.

The ‘floating 10 feet above the air’ feeling one gets on being smitten.

The mental strength developed from strong bonds of friendship forged over the year.

The utter grief of parting.

The agony of defeat.

The cruel realization of dark visages.

It has been an amazing year.  Hope the next one is just as special.

To the ‘year of maximum change’.  A toast to myself.
