I think I spend the majority of my life stepping backwards into good things. Kind of like an eyes wide shut sort of thing, I guess. If I were the resolution making type, maybe I’d resolve to spend 2008 devoted to mindfulness. But sometimes the surprises are nice.
I’m enjoying a week on my home turf, and it is good to be here: gray skies, London cabs, red buses. It’s a city packed with tourists as they prepare to ring in the New Year.

It’s that time of year when we look back, and ahead, and make those New Year’s resolutions.
