Happy 2oo9!

I'm getting ready to wake the family... yes, I'm the only one who could stay up to midnight without napping to it.

Even my golden retriever is out under my desk (scared from the fireworks), Eliot cat-1 asleep on the sofa, and cat-2 Ace, asleep in the dog's crate. I think the hedgehog is up running in its wheel- i love you nocturnal hedgehog.

But before I run up to wake them, here are my resolutions as they come out tonight--

be more patient

continue writing, but work more on essays as well as poems

enjoy more things and experiences

be more patient (did I mention this?)

healthy living, but with sweets daily

be thankful

get more sleep

To all of you who have read this blog another year, a toast to you for putting up with me and may 2009 hold everything you ever needed or wanted, and may you always have laughter, friendship, and the time to write and rest.

To a new year and a new and awesome president!

signing off until 2009...


  1. My resolutions are the same -- how coincidental!

    Happy 2009!!!!

  2. I was thinking the same about the Prez this morning as I was journaling.... then realized we still have the old one for twenty days yet [sigh] I will reserve that celebration till the door is shut on his last breath of authorty for this nation is gone.

    Meanwhile... happy new yesrs! On, and very nice violin.

  3. Happy New Year! I read all the time, but rarely comment. Sweets daily sounds like the perfect resolution to me.

  4. Maya, Michael, Collin, Priya, & Sharon---

    Thank you all for your notes and good wishes!

    May you each have a new year that is perfectly fit to all of your desires! Peace & poetry in '09!

    CHEERS to you!
