Begin as you mean to continue

Reflected clouds

Another picture of the beach near the Chinook Winds at Lincoln City, this one taken from the balcony of my hotel room a bit more than a year ago. As you can tell, I've been sorting through more old pictures and annotating them.

Today was an excellent day. Most notably, it was a well-balanced day, with a bit of reading, a bit of enjoying football, and a bit of being productive. I worked on Lintian some, for the release tomorrow, and I updated my web site in a few places, but I also went and read for a while and sorted through a bunch of pictures. A good omen for the new year, I think.

My charities page has gotten a substantial update and is now a more complete list of the charities I support. I tried to add a bit of explanation for why I support each one.

I'm completely caught up on book reviews for the first time since the middle of November, so it will be a few days before I post another one. I'm most of the way through Iain M. Banks's Against a Dark Background, after which I have some Le Guin queued up. Two more days of vacation, and then it's back to work. I'm feeling ready for it, though, and I'm doing much better with working from a to-do list and focusing, which will make work more rewarding and productive than it was at the tail end of last year.

I hope everyone else's new year started off as well.
