New Year’s Day

Coins in a fountain in Toluca

Well, I didn’t do much of anything today to start out the new year on the foot. But I haven’t broken any New Year’s resolutions either. Of course, the whole trick is not to make any resolutions at all. Last year, I said that I would write a Blog entry each and every day of the year. Well, gentle reader, if you’ve been reading all along, you noticed some exceptionally long gaps between blog entries. Sometimes I get too involved with my life that I forget about everything else. So this year, I won’t promise anything, but now that I have adjusted to retirement, I will write more regularly. And I will work on my website some more. I really have to organize it and put some actual content in there.

I promise not to make any more New Year's resolution. I promise!

My New Year’s resolution

Eureka! I was looking deeply and thoughtfully into my soul since the start of 2007 and I have found my New Year’s resolution. I have finally decided that my New Year’s resolution will be to write a blog entry for each and every day of 2007. Yep, that’s right. I will write 365 blog entries for 2007. I will write one daily, all year long. What’s that you say? Oh, I know that it’s already January 14 and this is only the first entry. Okay, I was busy with the start of the New Year. Do you think it’s easy knowing that I have to write a blog entry each and every day? I’m only human; I feel the pressure and buckle under it. However, I have figured out what I need to do. I have to read less and write more. I can pass the whole day reading and reading, in order to avoid writing anything. I have convinced myself that reading is a good way to warm up my brain so that I start writing. The only problem is that no matter what I read, I always discover at least three other texts that I ABSOLUTELY MUST READ! So, Gentle Reader, that is why I wrote my first 2007 blog entry just today. But you do have to admit that I do have lofty goals! I do resolve to write more entries this year than last. Watch. You’ll see! 

¡Feliz Año Nuevo!
