Since in my mid-thirties, many of my birthdays have been tagged to significant goals to pursue and/or to some milestone achievement. This year, I share with you my birthday promises to myself.
- Inspired by the lush growth of the three herbs in one large pot that graces the corner just outside my front door, I am going to step up the pace and expand by buying several more pots and a trough to grow more herbs.
- I’ve held a long and relatively quiet interest in photography. I don’t want to be a hindsight photographer anymore. The days of “If I had my camera….” are over. I will keep my camera in my handbag.
- With close to 200 written for my weekly column since September 2006 (a major life goal pursued and achieved), the time is ripe for a book compilation. I’m done with false starts. I created a blog (not for publication yet) to track my progress. All pieces are in a computer folder to be edited/ re-slanted/re-written which I plan to begin next Monday, September 27th. The ultimate deadline for completion? August/September 2011. The goal at this time is not publication but the process and the accomplishment of a dream tied to my childhood.
