Sweet and Sour Hearts, we live in dangerous times. I am on the warpath. Pen poised. Paper in place. Yes, RESOLUTIONS.

There is always a first time for everything – a worrying thought – and this year I shall march resolutely across the threshold of an old to a new year with my banner of that which will NOT fail firmly in place. No, but thanks for asking, the banner is not blank. It’s crowded. It’s so crowded that the odd resolution falling by the wayside will not be noticed.

Good luck to you too.

Hugs and kisses,




  1. My resolution is simple: I resolve not to succumb to resolution of any sort. Darn, I’ve just thrown away a post for my blog.

    • More is the pity, Magpie (you throwing away a post for your blog).

      I think people are too down on resolutions. Listening to some of you “resolutions” might be headlined “failure” instead. Like a foregone conclusion. Why?

      This minute my heart is full of enthusiasm, anticipation, knowledge that what I aim for will be within my grasp.. But then I am a realist. So instead of trying to ride a rainbow I have set my sights as high as my spirit soars.

  2. Very wise, per usual U, to crowd the list. Better to have more than none. Who’s counting, anyway?

    • I tell you, Bella, and I am not proud of it: I meander through life. Wherever the wave takes me. I’ve got to get a grip on reality. So, last week, I put my foot down and told myself to make a list. Not making-a-list-for lists’ sake (first step on the way to procrastinate) but a proper plan. Kick ass type. I have allowed myself a freedom of spirit which I am no longer able to pay for. Neither am I prepared to sell my soul. Brilliant, just realised that those last two sentences constitute the first hurdle. Over which I am determined not to fall.

      Gasping, with my nose just above water, I can’t tell you how much I admire some of you who seem to have it all sussed out, together. I don’t. Which is fine. I walked early, I talked early, now I am a late developer. There is justice in the universe.

  3. The sensible method is to resolve to do everything that will be done. It is guaranteed to be successful. We can even be specific. For example, on March 20th at 8:00, I plan to do exactly what I will be doing at that time. This is called the Doris Day method, per the song Que Sera, Sera.

    If we stick to this strategy of planning, we can accomplish a multitude of resolutions for the coming year, thus proving our serious and substantive character.

    • Yes, Looney, I can tell you are an Engineer. Taking the practical, nay, pragmatic approach. My trouble being that it’s all Que Sera Sera for me (see my reply to Bella). With the result of now wading through treacle.

      Let’s compare notes on 20 March 0800 (your time or mine?)

      I love Doris Day. She was so Fifties. Perfect.

      Insubstantially yours,

  4. Life is always getting in the way of my plans, so I’ve sworn off of resolutions. It’s just easier that way…
