I’m getting a jump on my New Year’s Resolutions. The top of the list involve words and concepts that I want to learn and live in a new way. Words like Cherish. Simplicity. Listen. Wait. Charity. Wait some more. Love. Patience. Write. Silence. Breathe. Rest. Do. And the list goes on… Join a gym. Take vitamins. Eat more fresh vegetables. Stop drinking. (just in case I start and can’t stop) Drink more water. Recycle something. Learn a new language. Read twelve books.
