I don’t do New Year’s resolutions. I’m not sure why; I don’t mind other people doing them but for some reason I’ve never gotten into the idea. I set goals, but not generally at this time of the year. It may be that my sense of time over the years has become more circular than linear. Or maybe not.
But I do have some intentions.
To be a better husband.
To enjoy and totally spoil the first grandbaby.
To see my youngest graduate from college.
To write more poetry.
To read more poetry.
To read more poetry aloud to my wife.
To write more. And do something with what’s sitting there finished on the computer.
To do more of these: encourage, honor, respect.
To pray more, and pray first.
