Krystella’s New Year’s Message




Oh Romeos,

No matter where you are in the universe, you’ll find good old Father Time walking along towards his end and a New Year. He’ll be born again and again for as long as we believe time is needed.

Yes. Another year is coming to an end. We say goodbye to so many things and so many people we love. For me, I like to remember the love I feel for all the things and individuals that have touched or have been caressed, by me. My love is eternal, so I only refer to the departed in the present tense. It helps to keep them ‘alive,’ if you know what I mean.

Now, if you ain’t dead, that means that 2016 made you stronger. I don’t know of any poor soul, still alive or being ‘kept alive,’ who hasn’t suffered some spanking this year. I know the universe strives for balance, so when all the ugliness of Lady Earth looks like a blond, orange trumped up mess and all of our icons have taken their final encores and leave the stage, we take comfort in knowing that a new star in the cosmos has been born. When the curtains fall, a stage door opens – when the bells ring, angels get their wings.

Regardless of whether your year ends this weekend, last week or next year, it’s a good time to think about how briefly everything seems to last. Take comfort in the things that are eternal. I love Love. Love does not die. We just forget about it sometimes. Continue to treasure the things and people that seem to have departed. 

Look up in the sky. If you’re lucky, that big old flickering thing up there isn’t just a new star. It’s the universe letting you know that Whitney Houston welcomes David Bowie, Prince, George Michael and Carrie Fischer with a song. They have arrived safely and are pain-free. They’re having the time of their lives. So, until you get your personal invitation to their celestial fiesta in the heavens, keep right on remembering them while you listen to their music or watch them on film. Let their paints never stop coloring this earthly canvas with their art. 

2017 is absolutely when the party begins. So, let’s party like it’s 1999!

May the New Year shine bright for all of us,
