525,600 Minutes*

Wow… A year, already? So much has happened in the last 12 months and, yet, sometimes it feels like it’s only been a few weeks–not 52!

I like lists and numbers, so let’s put this year in perspective:

A couple of art projects, a handful of other posts and 1 big house move.

It’s been a busy year with it’s fair share of bumps but, wow, I’m really looking forward to 2011! Several of the blogs have been a smidge dormant the last couple of months (and, yes, I’m going to post this across the various blogs just to wrap up the year nicely) and that’s something I’ll be working on in the upcoming year.

Basically, it all boils down to 1 thing:

Balance.

I don’t set resolutions, but I do make goals and I like to set intentions. Among the goals are finishing What to Feed Your Raiding Party and getting it into print. That’s a pretty big one, sure, but the work I put in this past year will make finishing it this year doable. I’m looking forward to wrapping up the remaining 15 state cocktails for Sips & Shots and starting the new series (ooh, secrets, but you’ll find out soon enough), as well as continuing on with the 64 Arts project–I’ve got some big plans for that one, too, but it’ll take more than a 2011 to accomplish those. Getting back to the 2 webcomics is also on the list, once the book is finished.

Personally, my overriding intention is to find balance, happiness and fulfillment in the new year. Yes, it’s a bit of a vague intention but I think these sorts of things need to be: what seems fulfilling today, on the eve of a new calendar year, may be very different from the fulfillment I seek 3, 5 or 7 months from now.

I wish you all well in the new year!
