Janus time [Dec. 31st, 2010|12:08 pm]

Looking back:

- I made only one New Years resolution last year, to learn to juggle. I'm pleased to report that I succeeded in doing so.

- I read 53 books this year, a rather low result. I feel no need to bore you all with the list.

- Though I completely failed at keeping a journal about filling my life with more grace and beauty, we did manage to make dramatic improvements in our home. We spent time with many friends, though not enough time with some of them.

- I made my first jewelry, which was marvelous, but then fell out of the habit of creating, which I regret.

- I got fatter and more out of shape this year, a fact that spiraled around with the general feeling of ennui that infused much of the year, each contributing to the other. It was a very good year in many ways, with good travel and much time spent with friends, but I ending it unhappy with my own personal accomplishments.

Looking forward -

- I want 2011 to be a year of shaking ennui. 2010 is ending with loads of it, but I am hoping to thwart its drag.

Your blog post is such that I must make a comment...rare as hen's teeth though mine are, :)

Thank you for the inspiration. The past year has had *way* too much ennui for me as well. May we both succeed well, :)

Happy New Year!

Ennui is always best shaken, not stirred.

Oh yes, this has been a bit of an ennui-filled year for me as well. Still, better all around than 2009 was (I've been free of bed bugs for more than a year, and this summer I will get ALL MY STUFF back!).

May 2011 be better for everyone. <3
