Tomorrow is the actual day of my five year anniversary as a podcaster. My plan is to sit down tonight and record the episode. It will effectively be published tomorrow because the absolute earliest I could get it online would be very late tonight.
I’ve been having a deep rejection of nostalgia lately and in keeping with that, there will be little to no glory days reminiscing in this episode. Instead I will focus on where things are at, where they are going and where I want them to go. I feel about this anniversary a lot like I feel about my birthdays. Ostensibly a cause for celebration, they serve to me as convenient annual markers of how fall I am falling short of my goals. It’s not party time to me, but occasions to hunker down, redouble and retreble efforts to move forward.
I may or may not ustream tonight while I record. If I do, I’ll post it here and also to my Friend Feed account. Thanks to everyone who has stuck it out this far, those people who started at the beginning and are still here, the recent converts and even those who started out and flaked away. We all have our own reasons and own paths, so do what you need to do.
And now, the party’s over because there is work to do.
