Remember This.

Been an interesting year. Winding down, now, into the last 2+ weeks of 2012, and as I just cannot seem to keep from doing, I am tripping over my tendency to pause and look back over the year.

It's been a plus and minus year - advances in publishing and writing, as well as advances in discovering the limitations of my own awareness and ability. It's been a climb, that's to be certain, but nothing ventured, nothing pained.

It's a year, that's all. Just like the Mayan calendar, they are less like fixed points and more like mile markers. Except they tell you how far you've come, not how far you've yet to travel.

So let me wrap this year up with a revelation: Dare. When you're out in the middle on uncharted waters, and mucking about in the center of an unexplored forest, it doesn't mean you're hopelessly wrong or abandoned.

Remember this:
  • Not all who wander are lost.
  • Flying comes from falling.
  • Making no choice at all is still a choice.
  • Following in the path of others is neither innovation nor invention.
  • When you're doing something that's never been done before, you're doing something that's never been done before.
Here comes 2013. Make it count, buster.
