I mostly liked 2016. Yes, the election sucked, and some baby boomers I liked passed away, but on a personal level it was pretty good. I taught watercolors all year and got a mind boggling amount of work done. Jack learned to read words and Ella learned to read music. Thomas published a rich and entertaining book by a writer we like this year and we have irons in the fire to work with more folks we enjoy. I almost managed to paint a wall in the new house... I think I'm almost ready. Painting a wall is such a funny and dreaded commitment for me.
