New Year's resolutions are quickly said, quickly forgotten, and often quite temporary. As we pass into the next year, I propose a single life-long resolution for you - Make Your Mark. Do something that will live outside of yourself in some fashion. Whatever fashion it takes, Make Your Mark. I'm even going to push one step farther and specify that you should Make a Positive Mark. There is no doubt that negative actions can also make a mark, but do you really want to be known and remembered because you caused pain or anguish?

I just spent the past 2-1/2 hours catching up on as many MEFA reviews as possible and I think I caught most of my friends and those stories that really caught me over the past year. If I missed you - it was totally inadvertent. If I reviewed you - I wish I had the time to review more of your work.
