hello there 2010

5/365
it's hard to believe that we are in a new year, and let's not talk about this new decade. i'm not ready for that. i can talk a bit about goals and projects. not resolutions, because to be resolute sounds so negative. goals is much more positive, don't you think? david and i both have a huge plateful of professional goals that would make 2010 a real stunner. keep your fingers crossed on that front. it's the little things though that seem so hard to keep fresh. like i really need to drink more water. sometimes i won't have a single sip the whole day. terrible. of course i realize this right before bedtime, chug a glass and then my bladder gets even later. bad habit. so little things. drink more water. sew pillows for the couch (if we're getting technical i suppose this should say sew covers for the pillow inserts i've had for the couch over a year now). recover the dinning room chairs. man if i get super duper technical, the top of the little list would have to be finish sewing the christmas presents for the kids that didn't get done in time. this seems to be getting out of hand quite quickly. let's move on to projects instead. i've started a 365 project for this year. the goal being to take and post a photo each day of the year. step by step is how i plan to keep on track. i've started a set on my flickr page, and i'm thinking i might do a weekly summary of sorts over here. maybe. let's not get crazy. other projects of interest for this year include posting our 12th 1000 words story this month. it's almost been a whole year! how crazy. we've got all these fun ideas bubbling on the back burner for that too. i've got a show lined up for july that i'll talk more about later too. and band photos to take for some dear friends! man. now my project list is getting all crazy too. see? 2010. i'm expecting big things from you. bumper crop.

I think there is something very daunting for me about setting goals at the beginning of a decade. Yours are sounding a lot like mine. I should probably finish up those handmade christmas presents sometime soon! One goal will definitely be to see my friend Hannah more often. ;)

I am enjoying the new banner. I like the idea of your 365 recap once a week.

I like the build up. It reminds me of a short story I read in college about a man thinking about love and recounts one woman's attributes after another, each one more alluring, better, an improvement of another or the collective whole. Not sure how the story ended though.

I've been thinking about this a lot too. Why do we think of time this way such that we feel compelled to make these big changes on somethings so arbitrarily triggered as a date in a calendar. Why we feel so hopeful at the beginning? It feels so unfair to November. But I figure it's good to have that arbitrariness in our life. So then even if we don't feel like it, there is something outside of ourselves that say: Come on, Get up. Sew them darn pillows.

I'm with you on goals. Happy 2010.
