When I think about 2012, I feel tired. I have a lot of work to do, two large projects, that will take up the first six months of the year. And a trip, maybe. So I think my job this year, is not to set a list of the usual flights-of-fancy kind of resolutions I normally make, but to remind myself to stay the course. Use the groundwork I laid last year. Don’t lose focus now.
With that said, I would like to knit a pair of socks and cook the turkey that I meant to cook in 2011. And write a short story, the fiction kind.
Something else: I need to take a lot less social lunches at work. I hope my friends will understand that sometimes I need that hour to work on writing or to go outside for a walk. I haven’t been getting out for enough walks and fresh air at mid-day and it is taking a toll on my ability to be cheerful and also my ability to generate ideas.
Happy New Year, friends. Here we go.
