gearing up

I've carved out some time this weekend to gear up for 2007, in an effort to be more intentional about how I spend my time and resources in the coming year. Although a lot of good things happened in 2006, I feel like I squandered a lot of time. Fewer books read, fewer completed art projects and essays than intended.

So far, I have:
- a reading plan
- a list of new art projects to try
- some potential sources for submissions for photos and essays
- freshly manicured fingers and toes
- a warm, fluffy robe

Still some soul care and Urban Skye planning to come.

happy 2007

new year, new journal.
my hopes:
more sleep. less Red Bull.
more creativity. less working for The Man.
all in all, a more life-giving vs. soul-stealing year.
