It occurred to me that with only a few weeks left in the year, I’d better get started on my annual New Years List. If you are a blogger of any sort, it’s a neat little exercise that adds up over time. This will be my tenth –yeah, really– year of compiling some form of the list. From it’s humble beginning as a quick and dirty, often one-word-answered follow-up to an email forward coming out of 2005, to what is now often an epic multi-thousand word introspection on the year that was. It’s not for everyone, your list or mine, it’s for yourself. It’s a celebration of your year, and opportunity to humble yourself to your shortcomings while simultaneously honoring the efforts you and others around you have made. And I realize I have a helluvalotta writing to do in the next few weeks.
