Every year when Keenan and I make our new goals we write on the side of our write-on/wipe-off kitchen planner what we are going to do. The list is titled with a single word "resolved". I simply like this-- it seems like an act of congress rather than a simple grocery list of wishes.
This year it was resolved to read more, specifically 55 books this year (not counting the books I read to Sloane each night). I am doing well so far. I placed a little widget in the side bar, hopefully to keep me accountable.
Also, I must get to the movie theatre more than once this year. That was truly abysmal. I am already tied with last year, following this weekend's viewing of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
The other thing I want to do is to write more. I am still trying to work out what that means, and how to accomplish it. I vascillate between wanting to throw myself into my blog and do it every day to not having a blog any more at all. Although I am not deluded enough to really think it matters to others much it does matter to me. I think the important thing is to not worry about who is reading anymore, in a sense. Of course I am aware that the blog is public and therefore should not discuss themes that I don't want known by any number of people who may come across it in any number of places where I may link myself. What I really mean is that I don't know what I really mean. Sometimes I ask myself "where is this (blog) really going?".
Reading, seeing more films and writing more. That's 2012, resolved (in a nutshell).
Keenan wants to learn to play his guitar better.
