Another arbitrarily designated year is coming to an end, and the next is about to begin.
I think a solstice or equinox makes a lot more sense for marking the "endginning" of a year- or a birthday if you have no desire to have a shared holiday experience- but whatever works.
I survived 2012... so far. I didn't change my situation as much as I would like, but I did make small progress. That's better than just holding my own or going backwards. And there are some possibilities on the horizon- at least there seem to be. And I can keep working toward something better.
I am caring less what "laws" surround me. I am caring less what "authorities" proclaim. I would like to see liberty explode over the globe, but I'm not holding my breath. I know liberty isn't important to very many people, but I also know that only those who know it is important matter.
I hope your year was a good one, and I hope the next is better.
