Or, more graciously:
2014: a less serious epitaph than last year’s
AND SO HERE I AM
From this year of shocks.
I’m still standing, baby.
It’s Celtic blood flowing through my veins, mo gradh.**
STALKING THAT SILVER LINING
I refuse to give up on the joy after sorrow.
Here’s to 2015.
** Mo gradh (pronounced ‘Moi rah’ – Scottish Gaelic for ‘my love’
**Boo-yah: used in order to abruptly express great joy, usually brought on by victory or some other sort of accomplishment – Urban Dictionary.
