By the time this letter reaches you the ball will have dropped, the fireworks will have bloomed, and the New Year’s kisses will be fading from your lips. We now look forward to a new year and the resolutions we’ve made for that year. Perhaps it’s ending a bad habit, or picking up a better one. Perhaps it’s trying something new to you or learning a useful skill. Whatever you’ve chosen to change this year I wish you the perseverance necessary and I hope that this issue of HEX, which is dedicated to the act of resolution making, helps with the growing pains.
