A resolute New Year's
Once again, it's time for all those well-meant resolutions…although I have to say, I do make them, and in 2002 I kept all of them. It helps to have a short list; and also to be realistic (instead of "I will be good at ____" you say "I will try ____"). I haven't actually sat down to make my resolutions for 2003 yet, but I expect that they're going to be very practical things this year. I won't be mentioning them here though, I'm one of those people who thinks resolutions are like birthday blow-out-the-candle wishes—if you tell anyone what they are, you have no chance. But anyway, here's to a happy new year, or at least a better one for everyone, for goodness' sake. And may you all keep all your resolutions!
