Happy new year, says Eeyore

2013 was generally better than 2012 which was infinitely better than 2011 which was arguably better than 2010. 2013 still wasn't outstandingly good in any way. Have probably reached the age when 'outstandingly good' doesn't happen much anymore- bar unlikely strokes of luck like winning the lottery- and one must be grateful for 'not outstandingly bad'. Spent it reading: must be happy that I *can* still read.

Buddhism however seems to have started to stick, in patches: am a lot less irritable than for most of my life and am learning to deal better with the nipping dog of anxiety. Would still love to be a dynamic effective vibrant person who gets what they want through sheer blind charm, but that's even less likely than winning a million dollars.
