2017: A new year

Reading Jen’s end-of-year piece made me realize that I haven’t written much of anything in a while.

Starting a new job the 2nd week of December at Nulogy has kept me busy.  Coupled with past holidays creates a certain type of gravity that prevents me from reflecting on 2016. As Jen and I talk about what we want to do about 2016’s family photo book, I realize that this year was more about recharging for me than anything else.

Given that 2016 was the year of “Post-Truth”, many people feel that it was a negative year.  With much of North America’s eyes focused on the run-up and outcome of the US election, the Syrian refugee crisis, and the death of many creative icons, I think there was a collective sigh of relief when we rolled over to 2017.

While I can’t deny that there are many happening in the world that bring me down, I personally ended off 2016 on a high note.
