first image found here, second here.
new year's promises to myself: i'm going to try and walk most everyday like i used to and i'm going to get back to yoga class.  i'm also going to pay off some debts and get myself a passport.  lastly,  i'm going to take my reading seriously.  i started a column over there on the right; a list of books to which i will add titles as i finish each.  i want to look over the list now and then and think about the books, try and recall details, remember the images i had in my head of the places and people.  the book project is about a larger struggle i have with myself that i see clearly in how i read.  i find that my natural inclination is to fly through a book and even if i love it i seldom think it over after i'm through or even remember names and places and stories.

what do you hope to pay more attention to in the new year?

I love your resolutions. Mine involve exercise and debt too. But I also want to spend more time with people. I started doing this already, but it's taken me a long time to understand that my longing for solitude can leave me lonely at times. Paying more attention to that balance is my goal.
