Something of an optimistic morning, though there’s no measurable reason for that to be the case. I’ve been badmouthing 2006 a lot so far, because so far 2006 has been punching me pretty hard in the mouth. But the upside of all of these major changes and hurdles is that two or three years from now I’ll be able to look back at another “turning point” year like 2000 was — a year I now recognize to be a great one, though at the time is was a very difficult one for me.
Here’s to the smooth patches in between the rough patches, and the way that the rough patches help you to enjoy the smooth patches when you get there.
(Caveat: assuming you get there.)
