Happy New Year, Readers
We often start our new year by declaring all the ways in which we plan to improve ourselves. It’s as though we currently aren’t “good enough.”
I’ll begin with my word for 2016: ENOUGH
Not as in
“thin enough,” or
“smart enough,” or
“pretty enough,” or
“young enough,” or
But enough about “enough.” This is the obligatory New Year’s Resolution post and I shall get cracking here. Here is my list:
Yup. I’ve got none. No resolutions. No goals.
There are things I’d like to do. I have plans. I have dreams. But I make no promises.
- I’m in the midst of updating my website. Stay tuned for that unveiling in February or March.
- I want to expand the themes of my blog posts to include Home, Good-byes, and Midlife Challenges (am I still midlife?) while continuing the themes of Friendship, Cultural Differences, Peace Corps, Central Asia, and so forth.
- I want to continue to write about some of the absurdities I find in my own culture. Unfortunately, they are too easy to find any more.
- And I want to be sure to have fun while I do it.
