Already Monday, in the New Year. The past two days have been relaxing and quiet, which I think is a hopeful start for this year.

I bought a Page-A-Day moleskine journal in a pretty purple, because I want to keep better track of my daily life - the little daily boring bits. These two days haven't been super exciting, but it's nice to write things down anyway.

Geordie got me a drawing tablet for Christmas. I'm really excited - my old one was was, uh, 20 years old or so? Anyway, this one's got active pen pressure and the active area is HUGE. There's a lot I want to do with it, and one of my goals for the year is to learn more about how to draw with my eyes on the screen and not on my hand. Phew, it's trickier than it sounds.

I'm still working on setting goals for the new year, but they'll include publishing my writing, getting a job in my field, blogging regularly (on Medium and maybe Wordpress), and reading and reviewing at least 30 books.

Tomorrow I've got several errands to run and I'll be taking Merrie out to practice her driving.

Well. It's 11:16pm my time, Pacific Standard Time, and we're opening a bottle of (inexpensive) champagne to help drink away 2016.

It has been a fucking awful year for many - deaths both personal and public have filled every single month, sometimes as many as one death per day. I'm hoping that 2017 is better. Golly, I hope so.

I don't have much to say that's intelligent. Everything I could say has already been said more and better by everyone else.

Just, let's work together on fixing what we can, okay?

I'll see you on the other side, filled with champagne and fruitcake.
