athelind: (Eye of the Dragon)
And so, another year ends, and Your Obedient Serpent will be more than happy to be shed of this one. I bid 2010 adieu with two upraised middle fingers and a shout of defiance.

It's time to face forward.

I've mentioned that sometimes, the radio talks to me, that the station I most often tune to has a tendency to play certain songs over and over again, and sometimes, the songs that cycle into that repetitious rotation are ones that directly address my moods and circumstances.

Back in November, as I was preparing to move a lifetime of belongings out of [livejournal.com profile] quelonzia's garage, this one played nearly every day.

I was going to post it tomorrow, but it played again, just minutes ago.

This, then, is my New Year: No Resolutions, Just Resolve.

I've got a world and a life and a future in front of me.

And it's mine.






I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams ... )

Happy New Year, one and all!

A statement like that might seem to need qualifiers, but really, it doesn't.

I don't know what the hell I'm doing.

About very nearly anything.

Credo:
Strive to get more out of liking things than out of disliking things.


Commentary:

"More", in this context, means "enjoyment", "emotional investment" and "conversational contributions".

By and large, I think I've done pretty good in this arena. However, be advised: following this credo will often put you at a disadvantage in conversations with those who get their pleasure from disliking things, and finding fault and flaw.

"There is a crack in everything: that's how the light gets in."
--Leonard Cohen, "Anthem"
