Ah January… cold and dark and long. The holidays are behind us, the annual, quarterly, and monthly bills all come in the mail. January is too cold, too long, and too dark.
January got its name from the two-faced god Janus. One face looking back on the past, one face looking forward to the future, Janus is associated with doorways, beginnings, or transitions. Now that sounds better than cold, dark, and full of debts.
January is a time to contemplate, to assess, and to plan. So here goes.
