The start of a new year...
While I am the consummate list maker during the year, I have never felt comfortable making a list of New Year's resolutions or goals. Instead, I have chosen a single word to guide my decisions for the coming year:

1. Simplify my impact on the environment --- to appreciate nature and make a difference
2. Simplify my material possessions --- to reduce the physical and mental clutter
3. Simplify my use of my time --- to free more time to create and write and share

Thank you for your friendship and support and for sharing my journey through 2008. I wish you a creative, inspiring and artistic 2009!

I am 100% with you on "SIMPLIFY." The last few years I've been saying that my motto is "Simplify, simplify, simplify!" I often need to remind myself too.

Happy New Year!

Oh yes I would like to do also!

Prosit Neujahr
(this is German for happy new year)

Happy new year to you too! Love the concept of simplify. Life has become so layered and complicated, it is good to keep simplicity in mind.
