I opened the best New Year's card this morning from my friend Jaewon, a pop-up card offering wishes of a long life. I expect to live to be 93 (genetics) which I think is a good age. So I especially love the intricate detail of this card.

I love New Year's as a holiday. Not the parties and shooting guns into the air (though that keeps things exciting) but the idea of a new start. Time to review, reconsider, and move on. A religious holiday really. Cleansing, cleaning, reflection. I don't talk about it much, but I tend to stay home, take a bath, stretch, write down something for the new year. Lately my list of goals is daunting but I thought of something simple this morning that reminded me that I can finish any of these things I want to. I've been behind all year on things so it is fitting that I am printed New Year's cards last night and wrapped New Year's gifts today. Last year at this time I was looking forward to a year of adventure, of a lot of moving around, new experiences, and learning. Now I am happy to be in this place, with a press to use in the garage to share what I've been thinking about.
