well before heading back into work today, just a quick moment to reflect on the best of 09 in no particular order...
exhibition - richard avedon in new york at the international center of photography - i had no idea i would like a fashion photography exhibition so much. also really enjoyed richard long...
television - the wire series 1-5 (yes i know i came to the party late)
gig - i saw jon hopkins three times so he wins (check his latest ep btw), also loved dubb, foy vance, soweto gospel choir and cinematic orchestra gigs this year
album - the xx and i know a lot of people who share this opinion, dubh a close second
festival - i made it to four but slot in poland gets the nod (edinburgh, big chill and greenbelt were the others)
grace - loved the table
sporting moment - chelsea FA cup winners and mark cavendish in the tour de france a close second
inspiring new person i have met - steve bevans - the man is wonderful
magazine - geez
photo i have taken - mmm not sure maybe over the wall
work moment - being in church house and being asked by the powers that be to do something radical and dangerous (hoping they haven't changed their mind since!)
harry moment - releasing his first album
jen moment - sharing a weekend in new york
joel moment - don't take this the wrong way this wasn't an easy moment but it was exciting to see joel moving out of home
achievements - i have finished the manuscript for the curating worship book (sent off on 31 dec - yay! hopefully out by greenbelt). it's probably not the most significant but is in my mind because it's recent!
blog moment - redesigning the blog and following obama's lead to reinvent my digital self
new web experience - spotify
