I locked away some things and told myself I couldn’t face them just yet. But, I want to start the new year with strength and bravery. However small this act might be, I am glad to have the courage for it. So, for the first time since September, I got myself to look at some photographs I took in Paris. I remember the emotions that went through me as I darted about on a cold Paris afternoon, missing the warmth of the jacket I had forgotten at home, taking pictures. I remember my idle thoughts at that time, things that bothered me. I am happy knowing I have changed so much since and I believe I have changed for the better.
