After another great season of merry making that followed quick on the heels of an epic Mexican vacation (and all the work that went into making both happen), I am at long last able to return to my writing. I am free of my obligations to my first job and can return to this exciting literary world I have been neglecting. It is a time for new beginnings, for resolutions and changes in behaviour. I have intended to write everyday since I was last year- the notebook went with me to the pool everyday in Mexico- life just seemed to get in the way. Again. I hereby resolve to swim against its current and put words on the page as often as I can. I am not naive enough to promise to do it daily- I have learned a few things about myself in the last forty years- often is all I can promise. The vacation is over, there is much work to be done. I ask you to witness my resolution. This year, I write!
