december felt both heavy and light; familiar things came to an end, moments were redeemed. it was falling in love with St. Vincent, and with Night Beds and Lorde all over again. it was time spent with friends i don't get to see often enough. sometimes it was feelings of helplessness and well-timed words. most notably, it was the month i started learning to play drums, making for a perpetual joy i wouldn't trade. 

every photo made it through development except for two, and for now we'll call that a win. five months in, and this project has become an integral part of my life.  i don't know how to adequately say thank you.
