Resolution for 2008 (if I can keep it)
Resolutions and goals are not for me - never have been. After a few weeks or months, if one really pushes oneself, the resolution is abandoned. As in war, the plan, not truth, is the first casualty. This past year I have been remiss in my blogging and my brain has paid the price. I might be getting that 'old timer's disease'. Or madcow, I don't know.
When I recently went into the archives to read some old posts that people had accessed, my reaction was oft times, "Wow! Did I write that?" Sometimes, it was, "Good lord! Did I write that?" I much prefer the former to the latter, but for good or ill, I wrote both the good and the bad. And sometimes the ugly. The commonalities of the good posts were a sense of urgency and heartfelt passion, an unrehearsed stream of thoughts and words that somehow coalesced with a semblance of sense.
So, get to the point already? Okay, okay. Here it is: I will write, at least, one post a day - good, bad, or indifferent. I hope that by the end of 2008, I will not only have a minimum of 366 more posts (I had to pick a Leap Year, sheesh!), but also be a better, smarter writer and maybe even a better person. The 'better, smarter' part is a stretch, but 366 is closer to doable.
