And they go faster and faster. The years they do. Everything is in fast forward. We'll be in the grave in no time. Make the most of things. Here's to 2013.
I learned that the universe is a lot more like a cat (unpredictable) than a washing machine (cyclical), according to Nassim Taleb. I found myself watching a lot of his talks and reading his book much of this year and found it be enlightening. It's tough for me to sit still with a long book (my greatest flaw), but I made it through this one, so it must be good, right? (Antifragile:Things that Gain from Disorder).
I perfected my chili recipe. No, really, it is the shit. I will put it up against any other chili.
I perfected my approach to tacos. I eat tacos now, on average, 2 to 3 times a weak. I suspect I'll be burnt out on this soon.
I got into Tabuli.
The band continues to play, writing new tunes and recording. Had lots of excellent gigs during this year. We look forward to new gigs and venues in 2014.
I made it up to Canada this year, Niagara Falls/Ste. Catharine area, and road the train a lot across PA. Other than that, not really much travelling.
I'd say, the greatest accomplishment of this year was a establishing a serious wiffle ball league. Well, not really a league, but a group of adults who consistently showed up to drink and play the game. We had good games and good turnouts, pretty much always. And it was fun to run the bases again.
Lots to be grateful for in 2013, we hope 2014 is even better.
