I made my list, and hung it on the fridge. It’s a mixture of goals and reminders, things to work on this semester. (And yes, that does say “finish sweaters on the needles.”) A favorite song from a few years ago, when I was driving east to start grad school, came up on shuffle yesterday — “Challengers,” by The New Pornographers:
on the walls of the day
in the shade of the sun we wrote down
another vision of us
we were the challengers of the unknown
A good song for the start of a new year, no?
