Do more: more writing, more hiking, more geocaching, more FUN. Get more organized. Declutter (which means scruffling out the old review copies and tickler files and notes for things I really don't ever intend to work on, out-dated research which has moved with me 3x time and still not been used, etc).
Christmas passed in a relaxed fashion yesterday. I did not do any caching, due to the headcold. Instead, I shoveled the 4" of snow from the previous night out of the driveway and took a walk around the neighborhood. We have been watching the Lord of the Rings film. I -still-have not seen all the way through to the end. I always fall sleep (or go to bed, which amounts to the same thing) about 1/2 way through the 2nd film (started the movie at 8pm may have something to do with this; the darned things are about 2.5-3hrs long, after all), and even earlier in the 3rd. Tonight/this afternoon hopefully I will make it through the third and then I can say I have done so. Not that this is a grand achievement or anything even close...
So. Moving on. Trying to do the morning pages, working on the book, struggling with the Tachyon PR. Thinking about the changes I need to make. Same as every year. Starting off in 2013, looking for the brightness and the hope of another fresh start (which, really, one could make any time; the calender just provides an easy metric)
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to one and all!
