A year of divided sentiment.
A mixed journey of ups and downs.
A bittersweet, winding road that had some unexpected twists and turns.
Some dreams and ambitions diverged whilst others converged, but ultimately there was little coalesence.
It is as though this year has built up to a forked road in the next year.
I will not be overly fond of 2012, yet I feel that this was a significant year that shaped and pummeled and formed both mercilessly and genorously.
