It’s the end of another year and time to reflect on things.
These are winter photos I’ve taken of things around where I live. Hopefully the pictures show that I love the place and
I feel very safe and happy here. Every week I take more photos. Every day I sit and write in a room full of cardboard boxes that contain my material things,
the boxes have not been opened for over a year. I have more ideas than time to write them, maybe the ideas will end up in boxes too. I’ll never understand
writer’s block: it’s like someone saying they are bored, but there are so many things to see and do. Maybe there are
too many things.
There are things in my personal situation that could be better but I liked 2012, it was generally a good year. Then again, I’ve liked almost every year. I’m one of life’s optimists.
However, this is only my take on the situation, I know others will see things differently.
It’s not that I don’t care (far from it) it’s just that I tend to see the stupid side of things which is why I’m finding this post really hard to write – if I try to be serious I just end up sounding pretentious. I’m better suited to funny. I take my writing seriously, but not the topics I work on – there are other, more intelligent and informed people who can provide worthy comment -
I know this because I read them. Writing comedy is also difficult, humour is subjective and there is no such thing as the universal joke, although if there were it would probably include farting. So far I haven’t written about farting but I might in 2013, depends which way the wind blows.
But if you want to continue reading an idiot who cares and likes playing with words for amusement, check in on Hard Egg News every so often. I’ll try and make it worthwhile.
In the meantime, Happy 2013
