Angela searches the world wide web - December 31, 2011

Goodbye 2011 - it's been good to know yah.

As I searched the world wide web this week I found a few approaches to resolutions I rather liked - for instance, Liane over at Enhabiten said this - "do you have plans to welcome the new year? i can't say that i do. although i might start an outdoor fire, write up a list of things from the past year i want to say goodbye to and toss it in. let it go."

Resolution #1 - Do above.

Resolution #2 - Resolve to make this journal more intelligent to inspire people to take a chance, jump in where they never thought possible and explore the world and possibly be inspired to learn a new skill, You might want to read this by Oliver Sacks or this from Alan Heathcock where he writes about reading a poem a day, .

Resolution #3 - Practice tap dancing. (need shoes first)

Resolution #4 - Spend more time outdoors, go to yoga and quit talking about it.

Resolution #5 - Read the books below:

Resolution #6 - Listen to some new music.

Charlie Siem

Resolution #7 - Learn how to write.

That's it. I only have 7 resolutions this year. 7.
