This is the month when I have a birthday followed closely by a New Year, so I think about Things.* I contemplate what I've done in the last year, and what I want to do in the next year, and why and how it all happened and what I'm going to do about it. So what you can expect around here is some sort of post about what I've read in the last year--at least the best of it--and, possibly, if I come to any Significant Conclusions about Life or find that I must share some Important News, then I'll write about those, too.
Thirty-nine! I'll be thirty-nine soon! And that means most people will probably assume that I'm lying about my age all year. I'm sure I can handle it. But this is your year+ notice to prepare yourselves for December 13, 2011, when I will turn forty and also there will be Mystic Events, Cataclysms, and Lots of Beer for Everyone.
*With apologies for all of the Rampant and Egregious Capitalization. It seemed like the thing to do at the time.
