Dear Alicia,

Dear Alicia, How can you fathom 2014? Like any other year you have learned, grown and awoken. But something is different. Something has changed and left you with the innermost feeling of magic. You have met the most incredible people this year, some of which you have described as “Fine Art”-due to their energy, depth and vibrancy. As always, timing is everything- and you have learned that more than ever this year. Everything has come together; in an ethereal way.

I suppose, in a way this is a “note to self” to keep that fire, that drive to return home. The wanderlust, I hope, will never cease.
