Year-Ender 2012

A long time ago, when I was learning how to use FrameMaker, I created a bogus newsletter. I set up a three-column template, made a second "jump" page, and connected the two so text would flow from one to the other.

The whole thing was an exercise in formatting. I wanted to give it a silly, playful name, and settled on Lung. Years later, I dredged up that name for this blog.

Here, at the tail end of 2012, are some of my favorite Lung posts from the last twelve months.

A series of posts relate to an injury sustained by my daughter – including, but not limited to:
Broken Arm
She Said No
Back in the Saddle.

Another post, Everything Hurts, relates to an accident my wife had.

In June I noted the passing of tenor man Faruq Z. Bey.

Earlier I'd become fascinated by the fate of a century-old structure in my town, and wrote about it in more than one post.

Right after Thanksgiving I went to an exhibit of Vincent van Gogh paintings and drawings.

The Presidential election inspired several posts.

And I began the year with a whimsical flight of fancy centering on the new year.

  1. I tend not to drop a comment, however after looking at
    a few of the comments on this page "Year-Ender 2012".

    I do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay. Is it just me or do some of the remarks come across like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I'd
    like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
    Would you make a list of the complete urls of
    all your social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
