Obligatory Goal-setting Proclamation for 2016

It’s another turn of the wheel, as they say. 2015 was better than I thought it would be.  The rear view is handy like that. I’ve never actually written my goals/resolutions/whatever down.  It’s too permanent for me and I apparently have issues committing to myself.
