Last year began with a sense of anticipation and I got laid off 10 days later. Things are different this year. First of all, I have a better job, and a better second job to boot. This feels like the year in which things will come together. In which the different threads of my life start to combine and support one another in a new way, to greater ends than I could even have imagined in 2001. Rabbit rabbit (no, I didn’t really feel like I woke up yesterday).
