A New Year

Low-lying winter sun

I have never understood why people find the change of the calendar year a good time to make resolutions. Resolutions that generally will not be kept. More and more I’ve found that my own thoughts revolve around the time spent from other epochs – be they graduations, birthdays or anniversaries. But still I try not to make resolutions for a year. I mean, it has well been shown that I can’t keep up with any 365 projects or the like ;)

It would be easy to say that the dark and gloomy autumn and early winter we had has sapped my energy. It would also be easy to say that my longing back to the Rockies after our road-trip in the US has distracted me. Whatever it is, I know that I need to get myself more organized.

Maybe it is the fact that we finally have sunlight again and the ground is white – although with much too little snow – or the fact that I am exercising more again, but I have more energy now. More energy that has to be poured into getting things done. Finishing the multiple projects I have lying around in various states of completion and remove them from dragging me down.

Let’s see how it goes…
