Is beautiful cloudy weather outside, am headed out to read. Between the cunning of recognition and the rhetoric of empire, I am inextricably enmeshed in jargon and anthro-speak.
Happy New Year!!! It's the night of the 1st or rather the morning of the 2nd. I've been around wonderful, kind, warm and happy people (not to mention some a little buzzed), swirled rum, tequila, wine and champagne and been held, coddled, smiled at and generally protected. Two cakes, two dinners and innumerable wishes and phone calls. Thank somebody for my unbearably wonderful family and friends. Can I keep them forever?

And yes, as I was telling somebody my resolution this year is to value these tiny slivers of hopeful humanity that keep me going and measure them in the moment rather than in the opportunity costs of 'when they are not around'. Maybe...

And I hope you all have a wonderful life ahead with the sun and the rain and the dogs and the cats. I wish you all the tenacity to live...inspite of all evidence to the contrary. I wish you all the ability to elude...
