1. I don’t have it together enough to do anything like “my top posts of 2022” or “links I loved most” or “100 things that made my year” but I did save some capybaras to share. Definitely taking this vibe into the new year:

2. I also saved this poem:

I am running into a new year
Lucille Clifton

i am running into a new year
and the old years blow back
like a wind
that i catch in my hair
like strong fingers like
all my old promises and
it will be hard to let go
of what i said to myself
about myself
when i was sixteen and
twentysix and thirtysix
even thirtysix but
i am running into a new year
and i beg what i love and
i leave to forgive me


3. And I found the Chaucer Doth Tweet account:

Looke at yow! You survived another year. I’m proud of us.
