Forcing myself to think of all the good things that have happened this year, I come up with New Year's Day, Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking, Hierve el agua, the Santo Domingo bathed in the evening light, the tejate-mezcal cocktail with the poet Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, the lucha libre in DF, visions of Roberto Bolano and Cohen's Marianne in Campeche and Tulum, visions of eternity and docking ships from the Marina Bay Sands with my mother (bless her), the books of John Holt and Seymour Papert, the dinners of December, a hundred days of mindfulness and a hundred days of excruciating pain (and yet what doesn't kill you....).
