One of my resolutions for 2009 is to do more original thinking (via my writing here) and less pointing to other stuff. 2008 was a very busy year for me on many levels, which led to less writing and more pointing. And to be honest I lost some interest in this blog in favor of thinking about gnarlyness on one of my other blogs, but after some reflection over the past couple of weeks — as well as the inspiration of meeting (!) some life heroes and observing how they've found ways to live their lives to the fullest (hint: cancel your cable TV subscription, fly to England when you want to, don't be afraid to let it all hang out, communicate with integrity and passion), I now have a crisper point of view about where to go with things here, and I hope you'll like it. I hope most of it means back to the future. Without promising too much, hopefully the quality and frequency will both go up. As a wise man once said, do both!
So, less pointing, more thinking.
Of course, since I'm an imperfect man living an imperfect life as best I can, allow me the liberty of pointing to something right now: Walking Eagles
Let's hope 2008 was the year where walking eagles did their stuff, and that in 2009 we can all soar.
