2011, a void year:

no personal high water marks, but rather a durational cocoon,
a tectonic shift towards something better; slow, imperceptible change.
Seemingly painful and mundane in process, but in hindsight, we have evolved, grown,
forged a stronger sense of self and perspective.
All of it was masticated, digested, broken down:
now we are left with nothing but the very essence, something closer to pure.
let's see how we put it all back together again....
