I got an iPad, a new iPhone, and some other new gadgets. Some second hand, some new. All of them helped me with my blogging as I was able to do more work. And while I stayed off the poem-a-day thing, things like my City Haiku series, photo essays, and other musings were helped tremendously. In a year where I faced more and more obstacles keeping me from my work, I came out feeling more prolific than ever.
