Some people have been saying 2012 was terrible for them. Before that, people were saying 2011 was a terrible year, or 2010. Not to demean people and their individual experiences but I don't think it's the years that are what's relevant, it's just that people have bad times sometimes and sometimes it seems to all come at once. I remember some really bad years. For me, mostly, cumulatively, they were the first half of the 2000s; it all started getting much better in around 2007 I think and then creatively, really kicked in during 2009.
2012 was a great one for me, the best for a long time maybe ever. It was rich and varied, with lots of new things as well as comforting old things. I am really pumped about 2013, this brand-new freshly minted year and I wish happiness and health to my four readers. Thanks for being my blog buddies.
