Happy New Year!

Just wanted to wish any and all of my readers a Happy New Year.

(Not the Jewish New Year, the regular calendar one. Duh.)

Someone I used to work with once wished me a happy new year with the words, "May the coming year be rich in all that is good."

The next year was probably the worst year of my life, but I appreciated the sentiment, even in retrospect.

It's really about the nicest wish I could make for you and I always admired the beauty and simplicity of it.

I'm thinking of taking a bit of a hiatus from blogging to concentrate on some other writing and some other stuff in my life. So forgive me if the posts here become less frequent. I guess I just don't have as much to say that's worth sharing (at least in my opinion) as I have in the past. Or I just don't feel up to it anymore. I don't know. Life on the Rim has just felt like a chore lately, and I've got enough stress in my life these days as is.

I hope this is just a funk that I'll shake my way out of sooner rather than later. For both our sakes. But consider yourself warned. Sorry my efforts to post every day became a few times a week than maybe once a week and then "when I feel like it." Sorrier still I just don't feel like it right now.

(If you miss the blogging, you know where you can read my other stuff.)

Not much of an upper to close the year with, I know, but tomorrow's a new day, a new year, and a fresh start for me. Again.

May the coming year be rich in all that is good. And filled with munkees.

Shanah tovah! Ummm... I mean Happy New Year!

I just wanted to say that I dig your blog, and I'm glad I stumbled across it back in November. I can understand needing a break. It shouldn't feel like a chore. I'll be checking back though and looking forward to more.

May your year also be rich in all that is good. (Monkeys are good, so that includes them.)
