And so, another year comes and goes.
As usual, in these days where daylight is scarce and the cold seems neverending, we stay in the warm comforts of our choosing and find ourselves reflective. We reflect on what we wanted to do, but didn’t. We reflect on what we are happy that we did do. We begin to think about things we’d like to do next.
Oh…and where movies are concerned, we make lists…lots and lots of lists.
My thoughts on lists are pretty well-known by now, but if there’s one point in the year where I think listmaking is apropos, it’s at year-end. Mine is forthcoming, but as is the custome with this feature, I’m more interested in what everybody else is doing.
So this week I offer you the lists of others. And as is the custom, this post will continue to be expanded for as long as things keep coming.
In summing up 2012, I give you…
