My Theme (Resolutions) For The Year


"Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life —
learn some and think some and draw and
paint and sing and dance and play
and work every day some."
 — Robert Fulghum ("All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten")

I ran across this quote by Robert Fulghum this morning and decided that I rather like it. I've been trying to think of what my goals/resolutions are for this year, and haven't been too inspired until now, but maybe this will do it. So do we still have any paint around anywhere? Maybe this calls for a paint by number set. I haven't had one of those for a long, long time. Hmmm.

I originally created this blog as a place to explore and share my attempts at being creative.  The past few months I've been trying to focus a lot on writing, and I've had a great time exploring the wide wonderful world of blogging.    I think, however, that right now I need to expand a bit in my creative endeavors, and not concentrate so much just on my writing.  Don't get me wrong, I still plan to work on and finish my current WIP during this year, and I still plan to continue blogging, but I also feel the need to do more learning and reading and thinking and drawing and painting, and singing, and dancing and playing, and maybe even some  sewing and quilting, in addition to the daily work of my life.
 
I'm also going to continue to look for the good things in life, but will be mostly posting my reflections on gratitude on my original blog at Random Thoughts and Tender Mercies.
 
So here's to wonder and a balanced life in 2012!
