Excess.

Too much food and drink. Too much light and sound - too many special effects. It's possible, I may have also said too much? Maybe. Nothing a frosty pre-dawn walk can't fix.

As bizarre and disappointing as 2016 was in general....we lost some inspirational people and got our hearts broken a bit, didn't we? On a personal/family level - there was actually a fair bit of triumph around here. New job, new school, new dog. It's mostly about the dog. BananaSaurus Rex had a lovely year - your support and all around pleasantness have been everything!

Courage, dear heart!
