Thank you, 2015. You gave me gifts I never knew I wanted and couldn't have imagined would be so joyous.
For some reason I'm thinking about a man named Corrado who I met on the bus in Venice during the leadup to New Year's 2001. "You're leaving after three days?" he asked. "I've lived in Venice my whole life and I still don't know it."
Here's to a new year of exploration, be it our home territories or the far-flung places.
