Here's to a Great New Year!

I have been trying to write my first blog of the year for a week now with no luck.  I was blocked.  I wanted it to be big, to be grand, to be epic!  I wanted to start out what I know will be an amazing year with a bang!  Yet, for some reason I couldn't match what was in my head with the movie topics I was writing.  So, I have decided to start off the new year with a little note to you all instead.

When I first moved to Los Angeles oh so many years ago, I was in awe of this place.  I wanted to soak up everything, so I started visiting all those iconic places I had been watching and reading about as a kid back in my small Texas town.  I used to hike up behind the Hollywood Sign regularly and gaze over the city, dreaming about finally being a part of that world.  Sadly, as time passed, I became more and more jaded by this industry, and those senses of wonderment that I once thrived on here became blocked by frustrating fog caused by disappointment after disappointment...until this past year.

Thanks to this blog, I have regained that true love of Hollywood again.  The history has revived my senses.  Therefore, I start of this new year with a thanks to all of you.  Thank you, readers, for making my first blogging year so memorable!  When I think about where I was in my life at this time last year, I'm amazed at the difference.  Much of that difference definitely comes from starting "Diary of a Celluloid Girl," and it wouldn't have continued if I had not received so many great responses from you all.

So, here's to the new year!  I know it's going to be wonderful, and I hope you feel the same as well.  And, oh, the topics I already have in store for you all.  Until next week, everyone.  And again...thanks.  :)
