A Brand New Year--Resolutions, Female Style

One October Saturday morning, the Warlock pulled me from my slumber, "You've got to see something.  Bring the camera.  Now."  

Behold!  This is what I saw;  a new day coming in with all its glory.  Who can think about yesterday when you have this in front of you?


This year:

I will run a half-marathon.
I will run a full marathon.
I will do a raw food detox for 14 days after I complete my marathon.
I will join Weight Watchers and lose 30 pounds.
I will be a little kinder, walk a little taller, speak a little softer.
I will read the Book of Mormon, twice.
I will get my Young Women Personal Progress award.
I will read 6 good books.
I will memorize one piece for the piano.
I will not hide from chaos, but strive to be an organizing force.
