A Divergent path from the one that I set out to.
This year I was going to get out and do more things in community then the pandemic happened and it was not to be.
3 months into the pandemic and my business did nothing it was a spooky time even with having incredibly low living expenses it brought a little fear to me.
Then some financial help came and it might have moved the arrow of my financial life. It was the capital I have needed for quite some time. Still quite far away from financial independence however my housing expense is paid for life if I live at my current home, and that feels good.
That did not happen till the middle of 2020.
Still, I am about 1/4th of the way to having a meager life that is financially independent.
1/16ths away from being able to live life as an independent researcher that has fsk money so if I want to study 2d particles or limpet teeth it will be at my discretion.
I have picked up more books this year than 2 years before however at that time I finished reading a few books and an astronomical encyclopedia.
Also, I have written a book even though it is still not completely entered into an electronic format.
Also, I finished putting up an ebook on Bandcamp and a few albums.
So many accomplishments now in life and if I get to live so many to come.
Lifes length is an indefinite measure, though we can do some probabilistic forecasting with familial life durations and our general health, still no guarantee.
Plenty of experimentation and study this year.
Much of the study has been in technology and finance.
That will help me write the next tech story that I am working on and it will be a movie.
A few years ago I finally finished programming Intra Locution A Cyberia Advent Movie that was an exciting feat. A movie completely in code de novo.
However too many losses.
Losses of my Grandmother, Great Aunt, Human and Animal friends far too many, and in my network the losses have been even greater young and old.
I am looking forward to the vaccine and the ability to more easily travel.
This year I will get my passport again and use it, I had it before and my finances were not in order enough to take advantage of it and that was pain.
When plans go sideways adapt.
I will be programming music to go with Cyberpunk Dao
The year ahead I will continue to do as Peter Thiel has said try to make your five-year plans happen in 6 months and see what will happen.
I learned sonicpi and processing programming earlier this year programmed a few music videos
I imagine there will be more
Finally, my house is in more order that has been 3 years in the works and there is still lots of work to do however it's livable and that is great.
that took till the last 4 months of this year.
Maintainance still takes time it always will and maintenance can be zen it can be mellow.
Several notebooks filled.
1 million people have seen my images on one platform now though that is not my art funny how things like that work.
Not a photographer taking thousands of images.
Curious and playful though, for the love of exploration and play.
May the year ahead be easier for all of us.
The year ahead
Finish or be halfway done writing tech story
Complete getting poetics into the computer so I can release the next poetics
Work on the other 3 or 4 books I have parts of

More will certainly be done as it always is a year takes us places where will your year take you?
