Like I said, stagnation.
Still, even with stagnation, it can be nice to look back. Something I've done throughout the year is step out the back door (nearly) each morning and take a snapshot of the back yard. I've put all the photos - all 258 of them - into a slideshow. It's amazing how quickly time can slip by. This is a year, compressed into a little more than six minutes. It doesn't seem like much has happened, but that's my fault. Things have happened around me this year; I haven't made anything happen at all. I think 2014 will be very different, a trip to Australia and kids going to public school notwithstanding. And that's a good thing. It's time to step back and take charge of my life.
Happy New Year, everyone!
