I don't really have any real New Year's Resolutions. New Year's Resolutions are just made to be broken, so I don't want to make any!
However, things I will aspire to this year:
1) Drink more water. (That one is recycled from 2008. It lasted a decent while before I got slack again.)
2) Take better care of myself. (Is that loosey-goosey enough for you?) This will take place on a number of fronts, including food and exercise, plus I want to get more arts-and-crafty.
3) Endeavour to post pictures within a year of having taken them. This one will be a challenge, but I figure if nothing else, it will help me blog more often, the one resolution I have consistently refused to make!
I have also decided that I want to take more pictures. Those of you who are familiar with my GIANT, never-ending Flickr stream of 1,001 photos of the Arc de Triomphe and other vacation stand-by photos, are thinking, "What??? That's not even possible, is it?" But what I want to do is take more photos, and get better at doing so, and including pictures of the everyday. I'm going to try to take at least one photo a day, even if it's stupidly mundane, and many of these, if not all (I have learned to not promise more than I can actually offer), I will post here.
So here, just before the stroke of midnight, let me offer you Picture Number One. However, it's your lucky day. I couldn't decide between two very different pictures, so I am giving you a two-for-one deal.
