merry new year

"a deep breath before the plunge"

I'm not really looking forward to this year. Liz and I still have to find an apartment to rent for one thing. We've been looking and looking, thinking and thinking about renting and buying and renting and buying, and looking some more and I'm tired of it. Especially, as I could happily stay in my current apartment were circumstances any different. It is not so much that I mind the act of moving though, it's just the act of looking and deciding can be so wearisome and frought.

The other looming battle is that of the presidential election. The Sierra Club is going to be throwing everything at it, and one of those things is me. It will be a busy year. It is a daunting prospect too, as we have an uphill battle to fight, and it has been hard to be optimistic about politics of late.

Still if I look at my own personal life, and what I have done, and what I could do, learn the guitar, write a novel, write a children's book, paint, volunteer, hang out in cafes and all that, there is a lot to be excited about. I'm lucky compared to much of the world with what I have and what I have access to. Sometimes though it is hard to remember that.
