From a boring, logical point of view, the changing of the year doesn’t hold much significance, aside from being convenient for administrative purposes. Tomorrow will still be winter and the evening will continue to arrive much too quickly. But psychologically, I crave the fresh start a new year offers. All the bad events of the previous year will be just a bit more distant, if only in my mind, while the potential for the next year remains endless and untapped.
There’s a lot in 2011 that I’m excited about, starting with the imminent release of Something Like Summer. Then there’s a new short story that I’m proud of and some other projects I’m not quite ready to announce yet. Aside from work, a new year brings a fresh set of birthdays, anniversaries, warm seasons, and a vacation or two as well. Yeah, I’m more than ready to say goodbye to this withered old year and take a blind leap into the handsome arms of the next. I hope all the wonderful friends I’ve made this year, both through YouTube and my writing, will continue to put up with me for another twelve months and beyond. I love you guys! As for my old friends, well I suppose I love you too! Here’s wishing the best in the New Year for you and all those that gather close to you.
