Tis the season for New Years resolutions. I dread this because I hate to make promises to myself about not eating carbs, and refined sugars. So weight loss and fitness aren't in my resolutions this year. Rather they fall in line with overall goals.
So for 08 my resolution is to paint more, as well as, to connect with my body mind and spirit (be the Buddha). The first passion I discovered I had was painting. Just the act of pushing wet paint on canvas with a brush puts me on a higher plain. It's fitting that this be my NYR for 2008 because I've neglected my inner artist for to long. This is a painting I did a few months ago tittled 2Jellyfish. It hangs in my bathroom. (poor image quality=I snapped it with my cell)
*update on 2007's resolution to read more: I totally nailed this one! I've read a crap load this past year. A few of my favorites have been Call Me By Your Name Andre Aciman; Selfish and Perverse by Bob Smith; every book in the Tales of the City series Armistead Maupin (yes I read all eight of them, plus two others he wrote); and Mississippi Sissy by Kevin Sessums. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Sessums at a stop in Iowa City on his book tour. Later over coffee I was delighted to find out he was as smart and down to earth as his memoir suggested. So yes every book I listed above falls into a GLBT category but I also read The Private Lives of the Impressionists and other great non gay books. Those were just some of my favs. in '07
HAPPY 08 Blog Bitches!
