Well, the mid-winter festivals have been celebrated; today is the first day of a new year.
‘The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older’ – Pink Floyd.
It is a good life when there is something to celebrate in the middle of winter, especially in these cold and dark climes where the daylight hours are so, so, so, short. Feasting, partying (hopefully with some common sense), meeting and greeting friends, family – and total strangers. Depending upon how much common sense has been used. It’s all good.
How many people make New Year resolutions? Perhaps, there are some bodies out there in cyberland who would share their resolutions with us. In a light-hearted spirit of fun. Mine is to lose weight. When the breath is hard to take, the knees and ankles ache, and it is difficult to dance for any length of time, the dancing being the most important, it is time to cut out the cakes, ice cream, pies, cookies, chocolates, marzipan – all the comfort foods, loaded with carbohydrates and calories. This way of eating is not artistic.
Cat among the pigeons.
Please, do comment on this blog. Your New Year resolutions, whether lifestyle can be considered a work of art, or anything you want to express. Maybe we can ‘dialogue’ a bit. Let us know what you would like to know, discuss, in this blog. Treat it as a forum.
I just had to go back and change all the lower case letters to capitals, where appropriate. In my own writings, these take one click longer. What do you think of that? Of course, when applying for funding, grants, making proposals – I use standard grammatical practices. The art of written language. Both ways mean different things, to the writer, and the reader – and the purpose of the writing is most important.
So, if nobody makes their wishes known, I think it would be fairly beneficial to pick an art organization and feature it, a different organization, or group, every month.
Wishing each and every one of you a peaceful and abundant 2013.
