2009 is over and it is a time when people are looking back over their year and looking ahead to 2010. Predictions are being made and so are resolutions. I’m doing neither. At least not publicly at this time. Also for me the new year starts April 9. That is my birthday. This year I will turn 36. I’ll be closer to 40 than 30 and that is something I am looking at with a mild case of trepidation. But I’m also looking at this coming year with a lot of excitement.
