Long time no writing, huh? My intention to be a prolific writer in 2012 got away from me, I'm afraid. Here's to 2013 being better for that. It's a fresh new year with so much possibility!
I read all the books in that big stack last year, and many more; I have a new stack to share for 2013 and can't wait to dive into all of them! I will start posting my Goodreads reviews over here for anyone interested. I've kept a reading list since 2000, and it's kind of fun to editorialize everything and see what other readers' impressions have been.
Since I last wrote, I've continued my studies in Spanish and will write more about that as I've moved from a rank beginner to somewhere in the middle. I trained in August to become a literacy tutor, and now I teach a student a bit older than myself how to be a more fluent reader and speller, and I'm reminded each time how fortunate I've been in my education. I put the knitting down and finished a long-undone needlework project, which I'll share before I send it off to be framed later this week-- and then go buy some more sock yarn. I continue to deal with my slowing midlife metabolism and will not go gently into that good night!
Here's to a year of reflection, action, peace and productivity!
