We will remember this year as the year of the big snow. Everyone in this area will, since this was the most snow ever, for the month of December in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. As much as we complained about the snow, it was beautiful, and the days after were picture postcards of deep blue sky nestled in pure thick waddings of snow.

For the next year, I am making promises, instead of resolutions. I promise to work on my patience (double entendre intended). I promise to eat healthier, and less of it, and drink more water. I promise to write more and look in to opportunities to write for pay. (My book reviewing job has been cut from the magazine I wrote for.) I promise to use my camera more often and learn to train my eye for the beauty beneath the surface. I promise to delve into my spiritual side.

What will 2010 be known for?


  1. If you can do even half of these, your followers will be lucky. Eating healthier and drinking more water? Sure, why not! I look forward to meeting your spiritual side. I bet once you unleash it, it will happen?

  2. I like your ideas for the new year. I have some of the same thoughts, but it's easier 'said than done'! I hope you'll be able to have many of those hopes carried out. But don't be too hard on yourself if you fall back on resolutions. Sometimes making the effort to just do ONE new thing in a year is an accomplishment;-)
