New Year's Transformation 2009


I am always transforming myself. So each New Year's Eve I think about different personas I would like to embrace for the new year. I am fascinated by the diversity of thought and levels of self realization of my fellow humans. I like to believe that each person I meet has something that I can incorporate in my life. Layer upon layer I have built what I am today. I am of a distinctive style and appearance when looked from the outside but once you get near, really close, you will see my composite picture. I am my beloved mother who passed away in March; I am the taciturn lover who believed in astrological signs; I am the perceived enemy at work that turned out to be my friend; I am the frightened child that found solace and comfort in the unseen forces of love; and also the petulant university student that thought it was chic to wear black all the time. I will name the past and present avatars I wish to emulate for the next year:
1. Maya Angelou- She is poetry and courage.
2. Harvey Milk- He represented audacity in the face of persecution.
3. Cyndi Lauper- A rare combination of compassionate soul and wild woman.
4. SARK- We are all innocent deep down inside.
5. Louise Hay- Promoter of the most profound "affirmative action".
6. Grandpa Walton- Oh come on, where is your sense of humor?

I wish all my fellow bloggers and visitors an enchanted New Year full of possibilities and opportunities to do your thing in the most peaceful and exciting athsmosphere.

Adorable list! I also agree that people have an influence in this blogger's land, don't you. This past year, I did an activity with Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls just wanna have fun' song.' It was a kick. Also, I made everyone read, "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings." Happy New Year to TPC persona and the "real" person behind, you are always persona grata with me.

What a wonderful list of people to admire (even Grandpa Walton). I hope your transformation brings you lots of joy and good fortune in the new year.

I always think of people as little Russian dolls, with one little doll hiding inside the next. But I like your idea of layers very much.
