Auld Lang Syne
More or Less


Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come.
  --- Alfred Lord Tennyson


I'm not a big fan of New Year's resolutions, but I do like to take some time at the end of each year to kind of . . . take stock . . . and think about the year to come.  I usually set some goals for myself (which are not really the same thing as resolutions at all), and I always come up with a list of two-word intentions for the new year.

Here's my list for 2016:

Dive in.

Look again.

Be present.

Onward, upward.

Bold strokes.

Cultivate courage.

Nourish friendship.

Stitch together.

Keep swimming.

Live in color.

Here's to 2016!  I have a feeling it's going to be a very interesting year.

I'm raising my glass (actually mug of tea) to you and your interesting year! I really like "Look again".


That's a great list - I love that they all involve action!


I find so much to think about in your two-word intentions for the year. Your list says so much about who you already are (to my mind) and I look forward to watching how your year evolves.


Such a great way to take off into 2016! I can't wait to take the ride with you. xo


Perfect. Love your take on intentions! Here's a great year!!


Your approach to "resolutions" is just stellar--these intentions are so affirming!


Good grief, how did I get a week behind in your blog!?! That's what happens when the internet goes down. And I get busy. Have a great year!
