It’s been a little bit since I last posted on here. Lots of stuff has been happening. Things are alright this Christmas.

I’m currently writing up a “Saying Goodbye” piece I usually write for the end-of-year, but it’s been a pretty decent month of December. Not a tremendous amount of personal chaos. I’ve been deliberating avoiding the news en masse this month, as I just wanted a nice holiday and not thinking too much about the economic downturn (ah, the glorious, all-encompassing euphemism) or the fact 2009’s looking like the toughest year for America and the Western World in decades.

Optimism is remarkably easier to achieve when you’re not as connected to the world sometimes.
