Yeah, yeah, some folks love 'em, some folks hate 'em. I am in the first group. I feel the societal pressures, and we are now in the post-climax time, the interregnum between the huge hype of Christmas and the quiet resumption of day-to-day living, with new calendars, in the short dark days of January.

New calendars - literally, turning over a new leaf. So it resonates for me quite wonderfully to think about new goals and old, unfulfilled ones. I will rededicate myself to the old ones (health-related, mostly) and joyfully think up new ones. Greening my life, slowing down and greening my food, # of new recipes to try, reading goals, travel goals.

When I think of where I was one year ago, I feel pretty good about right now. For that I am grateful. And will cheerfully think of new goals for the new year. If you don't think the same way, that's fine. Have a great year no matter what.
