What's Your New Year's Resolution?

Do you even recall what last year's New Year's Resolution was? I do. Mine was to complete my autobiography and get it published on Amazon. I did that and I published 3 other novels as well.

It's usually pretty hard to keep those resolutions we make in January each year. I think we get all enthused at the prospect of a clean slate and start thinking anything is possible:

  • Maybe I'll get married this year!
  • Maybe I'll get rich and famous
  • Maybe I'll win the lottery
  • Well, at least I could lose 10 lbs

So this year is coming up fast. It's time to make some decisions about what you'd like to see change in your life. I'd like to publish a few more novels. One thing I don't do enough of is write poetry. I've always enjoyed that so much. To me, its the funnest kind of writing. The last few years, I just haven't had the time, energy or inspiration. But below are a couple of really short poems to get started.


I GO FREELY
Not bound and gagged,
Nor kicking and screaming,
But freely, my heart begins
Its new journey.


GREENER PASTURES
Strong coffee,
A dollar in your pocket,
A journey begins,
North by northwest,
Heading to greener pastures.


TRY TO STAY AWAKE
Life—
A game
Best played
Awake.
