- long-gone friends
- ghosts of the past
- maxed subwoofers
- unequal distribution of learning opportunities.
- the eternal space between what is thought and what is spoken
- not having a pet cat
- damnably expensive musical instruments compared to their prices in the US
- the prejudice of the prejudged
- social ills in general
- loose analogies
- bad mouse microswitches
- the lack of soldering experience and EEE knowhow.
- moving large numbers of stuff around
- unripe wisdom
- the lack of context
But for all the love, friendship and experience I've been a part of this year, I say, forward and onward to making things better and making better things!
And to these demons, I wave my clickety-clackety plastic thing. Shoo!
We have work to do in 2014!
