Last Post of 2008!

When 2008 began, I didn't really think I would have much to look forward to, in that I had no big events planned (like the Josh Groban concert in 2007!). But I was wrong. This really was the Year of Twilight. I discovered and fell in love with the books and then had the first movie in the series to look forward to in November. As I look back on the year, it really was full of fun and interesting things. But Twilight tops them all.

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

---William Shakespeare, the Tempest,
Act IV, Scene i, Lines 148-157
