2023 End of Year

This year was one of the most challenging years of my life. There were parts of this year that were rewarding, such as new home ownership, finishing a marathon, and visiting the Belgium and the Netherlands.
There were parts of this year that were very painful, such as ending of friendships, flooding of the basement, and various sicknesses and health concerns throughout my close friends and family.

Moving forward, I will take better care to be more diligent in how I balance my manic attentions and personal desires.
This coming year contains many uncertainties, but it will be my goal to minimize the amount of harm that I cause others.
