Resolved…

New Year's Resolutions, list of items

“I don’t do New Year’s resolutions,” she said. “You always end up breaking them and then you feel like a loser and…just…just…nothing…NOTHING good comes of it.”

My friend got me thinking (always dangerous), and I wonder if the problem isn’t with the one resolving, but with the resolutions themselves. They always seem to center around controlling the physical, when ‘physical’ is the most transitory aspect of existence. Maybe the focus could be widened. Or blurred. Or spangled… 2016 will never come again. This is your one chance.

  1. Get carried away.
  2. Get swept off your feet.
  3. Notice others’ joy.blognewyear3
  4. Strike the G-word from Guilty Pleasures.
  5. If you haven’t found your tribe, be one.
  6. Daydream.
  7. Watch the sky or the sea; they have the power to amaze.blognewyear2
  8. Soar
  9. Skim
  10. Savor

…and wear sequins inappropriately and unapologetically, because life can always use more sparkle and glitter.

A Northwest New Year’s Eve

Here in the Northwest we like to welcome the new year with a visual shout out from the top of our signature logo…the Space Needle.

A great many people who live in the neighborhood are treated to pyrotechnics galore, accompanied by blaring music and cheering revelers.

It really is quite an amazing sight as well as an amazing site.

Afterwards, the celebration continues into the small hours of the newborn 2015. So, apologies to those who live nearby, a captive audience to the annual madness, noise and disturbance, but…

Happy New Year!

And twelve months from now, we’ll have recovered enough to do it again…
