from Sally and RevGalBlogPals, new year resolutions friday 5
1. Do you make New Year resolutions?
laid out some plans and aspirations for 2008. but that doesn't quite answer Sally, so i'll say technically i really don't and never really have (made new year's resolutions). however, i like being aware of some kind of demarcations and distinctions between that old year and this new one.
2. Is this something you take seriously, or is it a bit of fun?
one of the reasons i don't often resolve much for any new year is that i tend to take everything seriously, but for fun i enjoy eating traditional new year's food (which i didn't do for 2008, since i was out of town), especially pickled herring and hoppin' john.
3. Share one goal for 2008.
constantly living 'as if'—always, in every day and way, to practice resurrection, to quote Wendell Berry, and as Sheryl Crow sings, "these are the days when anything goes—every day is a winding (yet open!) road..."
4. Money is no barrier, share one wild/ impossible dream for 2008
globally wild: obliterate world hunger
more home frontally wild: better all-over care for returning and especially disabled military veterans
5. Someone wants to publish a story of your year in 2008, what will the title of that book be?
given that i expect 2008 to be far better than 2007, it'll be called practicing resurrection along life's winding road (kind of dumb, i know, but it's already 8:15 am)
