…Happy New Year!  I hope 2013 is your best ever.
Today is the fulcrum, a good day for reflection as well as for looking to the future.
There were some great moments and achievements in 2012, yet the year left me wanting.  I wasn’t nearly as productive as in the past.  In fact, toward the latter part of the year I was a lazy ass.
Have you made your New Year’s Resolutions?  I have.  Apparently I am going to be industrious, healthy and agented.
My list is very similar to other years, and I think that’s okay.  They key, of course, is staying on track.

…This afternoon I’m going to see “Life of Pi.”  I’m on a quest to see all the films that will likely be nominated for Best Picture.
I read “Pi” a few years back.  It was a struggle for the first 100 pages, but I remember the ending being hysterical.
Should be interesting.
