2012 has been a huge year for me. I bought a house and got engaged. Big stuff. This year I was considerably less active on the website compared to 2011, although it’s because I’ve been more busy doing things around the house, doing more car repairs on my own, and of course, working on this new model railroad which I now have space for. It’s been a happy time for me. And a very industrious one!
Last year on Microcosmologist I crossed paths with several personal heroes of mine and that in and of itself was super fulfilling. This year has been much more humble and introspective by comparison, and that’s not a bad thing.
I have also done some real cool stuff that just hasn’t made it onto the site yet. There are two very cool timelapses that haven’t been posted, a ton of great pictures that still need to be uploaded, and many poems that need to make their way onto the periodic table.
Speaking of poetics, as a new year’s resolution last year I told myself I needed a new push to write more poems. I created a folder called “Project Renissance” with the goal of writing a poem a day. Predictably, I fell far short of that lofty goal, but the project was an unmitigated success, in the sense that it generated a giant amount of writing, far exceeding what I did in 2011. I need to push myself to keep the momentum up. I think growing closer to completion on the poetic table will help a lot. When it is complete, I plan to make it into a second book, which is additional motivation. That one is near the top of the list for 2013…
How about you, dear readers? Anything you want to see more of on here? Any goals of your own for the coming year? We survived the Mayan Apocalypse so I think some celebration is in order!
