After today, there's only one more Monday left in the whole year. So at least we've got that going for us.
I know that I've been sort of phoning it in on the blog over the last few...well for a while now. I have thoughts on a lot of different issues, but it's hard to find time to sit down and get my thoughts down in a coherent manner. Writing is certainly harder than just sitting around and arguing/complaining with your friends about something. It is for me, anyway. However, it also helps me sharpen my ideas and figure out what I actually think. It's similar to how the written appellate brief is more significant than the fun of oral argument.
Accordingly, one of my New Year's Resolutions is to put out some longer pieces on a more regular basis. Don't worry, there will still be regular posts on trivial things, too. We can't take ourselves too seriously.
In the meantime, I'll put some nice music here that I like to listen to when I'm writing at work. No, it's not seasonal, but it is good.
Let's all try to think a little more, listen a little more, and talk a little less.
