Happy New Year! I probably miss you- and in any case, I'm glad you're out there, reading.
I will likely fail to keep my 2014 New Year's resolutions. (I kept a written list of my 2013 resolutions, which was really ill done of me; accountability is most disheartening.) I'm doubly glad, then, that I was able to keep the smaller, more personal resolution of marking, on this blog, every day of Advent as it passed.
Time is precious; the least you can do is howl a little as it goes.
