Concerning New Year's Resolutions: I have for years promised myself and others that I would make a greater attempts at keeping in touch, showing signs of life, and generally letting a slew of good friends know that, even though I can't or don't call or write every day - I don't Facebook - that I would keep in touch on a more personal level.
Over the last several years, I have made and sent New Year's cards to a number of people. This year I upped the ante, and sent out seventy-two home made New Year's cards, and in 90% of them I added printed photographs of friend's children, events together, and other memories out of the thousands of photographs I have in my collection. I even sent a letter to my Great-Uncle in Germany - something I have put off for years.
It was a lot of work, but the effort has paid for itself in that I feel I have kept a promise to myself and others, and I have achieved a goal early in the year that I have put off for far too long.
Happy New Year, indeed!
