Ah, Janus, your time has come. You look back upon a 2010 full of hopes, dreams and promises both fulfilled and crushed. You look forward to a 2011 full of bravado, expectations and a motivating sense of slight discomfort. As this day and year close, you represent that ambivalence we all feel as we turn a page. All we know for sure is that you’ll be back, looking both ways, in 365 days. Nice work schedule.

I did beat one resolution from last year, which was to come up with 52 posts in 2010. Beat it by one (not counting this one). There will be no measured resolutions for 2011. Instead I will try to be wiser, to learn more, and to listen more. Big tasks all.

To everyone who takes the time to read this blog, my best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. And Janus, we’ll see you next year, rested and ready.
