A big year takes one or two passions, interests or wanna-dos and maxes out on them. I know that many of us prefer to dabble with all our areas of fascination, and if that’s you, well, maybe you’re right. I say this only because my 2016 and 2017 Big Years have shoved some of my preoccupations onto the back seat. I’m barely reading, hardly watch TV or film, just tinker with birdwatching, have almost ceased hiking, and as for doing community work, that’s for 2024!
I guess it’s a choice: flit from wonderment to wonderment, or focus for 365 days. I’ll stick with my Big Years.
