Happy 2009!

Happy New Year everyone!!
I feel W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L! Everything is happening exactly how it should, and I am so happy it's simply awesome! I can't even describe how great it is to achieve this inner peace/inner bliss thing. I feel extremely grateful for my life!!
New Year's Eve was tons of fun! One of my activities was First Night, an arts festival held downtown. I loved being around so much creativity. There was a parade and tons of performances. They also burned a huge wooden clock with people's resolutions and wishes on it. It was quite the spectacle, with fireworks and such, and it was kind of funny how everyone got all excited about the fire and destruction, with everyone cheering, "Burn! Burn!" ;)
In the parade, they had fire jugglers, bagpipe players, dancers, all sorts of earth-friendly participants, and much more. The Austin Public Library had a cute performance: Carpe Librum, Seize the Book, with librarians dancing with their book push carts. I really liked watching the aerial dancers. They were about 30 feet in the air, hanging on big ribbons and performing myriad fluid moves. My favorite part of the whole event was the wind chimes. In a big gazebo on Lady Bird Lake, they had about 20 different wind chimes set up, with the biggest one about ten feet tall! It was absolutely beautiful to walk in and listen to the music they made. I didn't want to leave it gave me such a blissful feeling!
I know this year is going to be wonderful! I wish you all this optimism and many events to prove it worthwhile!
