Reflections on 2014: The 1st New Year Day

Looking back on 2014, a year of change, anticipation, success, and reward. I spent most of it perusing restaurants, bars, cafes and concerts. Shooting tweets and Instagrams and LinkIng them to my Facebook feed. All surrounded by my best friends and family, both old and new. Looking at this collection of events from this year, I can't help but feel humbled and proud. Besides eating fantastic food and experiencing all sorts of great music, I started a new job and developed life long friendships and relationships.

It is an incredible experience to be with people who share this history. On this past New Year's Day 2014, I got to be with some of the best people I know. We strolled into the newly renovated Fog City for brunch. After much debate, a very long service and endless amounts of food and drink, we were able to still look around, smile, and feel thankful to have one another. I look at that picture I tagged and posted with a since of pride. We got more than the gifts from the kitchen and the gifts from the bar. We got that time together.

That afternoon, I had a chance to pause with my dogs on top of Bernal Hill and look at the sun setting over this city.  I get to do that a lot living here, look at the city.  Eat and drink all of it's options. I get to watch it, as if it's a endless motion picture. Read it, in 7X7 which  I can never put down. Listen to it, like a day at Outside Lands. I think what gets me most excited is the ability to Share it and Store it as memories in the "Cloud".  This was one of those days and reflections.
