Journalling is a help, because thinking, writing, and reading allow reflection that often gets sidelined or buried in the speed of conversation. Regrettably, even journalling is too often strangled by its position amid lists and calendars—while they bring freedom in so many respects, they have a way of encroaching on the very things they seek to preserve. In the rhythm of our lives, there's a lot of competition.
So this isn't so much a resolution as a resolve to resolve, or at least to think, write, and talk about it. We're in a dash toward Macworld in San Francisco next week, so time is limited and noisy, but at least I can mark a desire to do something beyond running around and responding to dozens of stimuli. Baby steps.
