This year I resolve to appreciate each day of 2009 filled with hope for positive changes as I recognize all the possibilities, and to remember that life is a series of choices. I don't believe so much in resolutions, but I do think of each year in terms of what themes I'd like to focus on. My 2009 goals include becoming more pro-active in all things, to focus on promoting myself for the children's illustration market, and to not forget to enjoy the small stuff like a nice walk along the river.
I was watching the New Year's celebrations around the world, and realized that this is the last year that the funny spectacles people will be able to use the 2 zeros in the middle of the year for the eyeglass lenses. I wonder if this makes the manufacturers of novelty specs a bit sad? Oh well, they had a good run.
