It's a sparkly New Year at the South Pole today. I can't help but look back at 2017 and after wondering where the time went, wonder how I could possibly have a better year in 2018. But I aim to try!
My time at Pole this year is starting to wind down with only 6 weeks left of the austral summer season. I wish I could slow things down and enjoy the ride a little bit longer this year. It's been a spectacular season spent with some of the kindest, most generous and talented people I've ever met. I feel incredibly lucky to have them in my life, even if only for such a short time.
2017 was filled with adventure, laughs and days upon days of creative focus. The end brought some happy surprises and ended with a bang as my band, Jimmy Snippets & the Crevasse Detectors, rang in the new year with a fun set and my first time singing in public. At the start of 2017 I committed to doing intimidating things outside my comfort zone, and being terrified on stage while in the midst of the sweetest possible crowd was absolutely the perfect way to close the year out.
I feel so fortunate to be able to live this abundant, chaotic life and I can't wait to see how my story unfolds in 2018...
Sparkly best wishes for the New Year,
