The title, not the content.

The content pretty much writes itself once I the concept and start making the bullet points.

But the title. How do I get you to read what is written? Most times I have used out and out trickery…..a title with very little to do with what is in the body. Just enough to get you to try and find clues in the body.

Yeah. I can be a pain in the ass.

This is not your typical year end holiday letter.

No bragging. No hyperbole.

This has been the year of learning about me. And it has been incredibly productive.

I learned how to be still. Believe it or not. And I learned how to enjoy that quiet. With the quiet came a sense of peace that I have not felt in many, many years.

I have learned that I am a good man.

Again, for many years I didn’t feel that I was good enough. I wasn’t good enough as a husband. I wasn’t good enough as a boy friend. I lacked.

But over the past year I learned that it wasn’t totally me. That the lack was not totally mine.

So this coming year is going to be more of the same for me.

Learning about me.

Learning who I am.

Being me.

Being who I am.

Because I am a pretty damned decent man.

Believe it or not.
