It was half an hour after midnight, the beginning of the year. After all the firework and the firework. Oh there were plenty, and they were close and loud too. After three glasses of champagne, and a few other glasses of sparkling wine, I was out for a ride. No, I wasn’t driving. It was […]
So here you go, this year’s resolutions: Stop buying things I don’t need Go to the gym, or just quit Go out for walks in the neighborhood at least twice a week Read books — at least five books in a year Write fiction/poetry Don’t eat after 8 PM Sign up for an art workshop […]
I was thinking about the whole perception of “The New Year”, and “new beginnings”. I was thinking about the notion behind writing New Year’s resolutions, and why we do that.
