Wow, where did 2011 go? I would categorize this year for me as a very interesting year. I attended the very first Intergalactic Sporkfest, and it was AMAZING. My daughter got married, I released my first novel, and I embraced new experiences, both personal and professional. I fell flat on my face a couple of times, but I just got up and kept on plugging. (Except I don’t drink or piss the night away.)
As I reflect a bit on 2011, the one thing that really stands out for me is how many amazing people I’ve met this year. People who have literally changed my life. Even the people who…let’s say, disappointed me, taught me valuable lessons about myself and my work. I’m really looking forward to what 2012 has in store.
I try to express my appreciation for everyone and everything throughout the year, but this seems to be a good time to say it again, in case you missed it. Every one of you reading this, I am grateful for all of your support over the past year. Each and every comment, “like”, or follow; reader, reviewer, client, friend, lurker; all of you. Thank you, thank you. You have helped make this a wonderful year.
I hope this coming year brings an ease to the economic stresses; an improved political structure; less fucktardary all the way around for all of us. In the meantime, have fun but be safe tonight if you’re out and about.
