Hello 2007

they say there were 20,000 balloons in this drop.

There is just an hour left before the first day of 2007 comes to a close, and good narrative or not, I am going to post something.

The new year opened in Indianapolis under a sea of balloons.

I did not lose my camera this time, so I consider it a success.

Lots of sorting to do. There are boatloads of pictures—on memory cards, on hard drives, and yet to take.

I’m feeling particularly excited about this flip of the calendar, and I have many people to thank for that optimism.

I’ll start off with you, the person reading this ol’ journal…

(insert raised glass)

Thank you.

I’ll fill in the rest over the next 364 days.


Post note: December 31, 2023

Ah the wild night that was. It’s hazy but I can remember the framework of the night. (Plus there are 250 photos from the evening where it appears I took a bounce flash on my Canon 20D and was THAT GUY at the huge party at the Indianapolis hotel we stayed at. There are photos I will not share here, but here are a few below that are fine enough!


  1. Had I know you were going to be here in Indy I would have insisted on meeting you! Happy New Year. I hope it’s as festive and wonderful as you want it to be.

  2. I was kept in the dark for the plans on NYE Michelle, but, DAG, Indy is lively and awesome. I know there was a football game and aholiday, but the downtown has so much to offer.
    We’re going back, for sure. I shall do my best to alert.

  3. all the best for you this year of the pig… tons of health and heaps of happy !! looking forward to your 364 ahead… cheers !
