A Homer's Travels Look Back At 2009

Another year is almost over. Tonight we'll probably go out for an early dinner before watching the Omaha fireworks show. Going through my posts from this year, I really didn't find much of a trend. I posted about the same number of posts this year as in 2008 though this year's numbers were padded by the only predominant theme: photography. As the year went by the number of pictures I've taken has slowly decreased. I guess I'm ending the year in a picture taking slump.

Let's look back at 2009, shall we:
Last year, when I summed up my plans for the new year, I said:
"The coming year is going to be one of preparation for me. I want to prepare myself for the 2010 Pilgrimage of Saint James. There are a couple trails including the Steamboat and Cowboy trails that should provide good training. I also intend to do more Omaha walkabouts to add miles to my legs in between bike rides."
The coming year will be a continuation of the last. I have postponed my Pilgrimage to 2011 for various reasons. I intend to do the Steamboat trail this May. I am considering doing the Cowboy Trail in July/August after I get back from our Jordan trip. We'll see what actually happens.

Watching all the retrospectives of television, the last year, not to mention the last decade, were pretty dismal. Fortunately, The Wife and I have come through relatively unscathed. Hopefully the new year, 2010, an optimistic sounding year, is better for everyone.

Here's to a Happy and Prosperous New Year for all.
May all your dreams come true in 2010.
