To make an end is to make a beginning

I'd like to take a moment to wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous (against all odds, it seems) 2009! 2008 was a kind of crucible for me, the stuff films are made of: it was really tough sometimes, but I made it through a stronger and smarter person.

Resolutions are a pesky sort of thing to deal with, if you think about it. Every major cultural signal we get regarding resolutions says that they're great to make, but, um, you're gonna break it sooner or later. No one ever makes it. It takes a lot of courage to stand up to that assumption.

I'm only making two resolutions this year--one physical, one psychological--and both are the kinds of resolutions that, if I keep to them, will change everything.
