Random thoughts on the New Year
Don’t make resolutions – make dreams. Dream big. Then plan what is needed to make dreams real. Then implement.

Don’t quit; that means reality and the naysayers won.
This weeks supermoon inspired this poem. I have a window by my desk and can look out through the treetops and see the moon hiding, The photograph is by Matt Cardy of Getty Images

the wolf moon’s crisp light
warms my soul in its still beauty
New Year thoughts – Although is odd to put so much emphasis on an abstract created and measured by man. Every day is a new day, the first day of the rest of your life. Go forth and live,
Behind us certain death
Before us mortality
Actions transcend time
Beyond the physical body
Haiku inspired by reflections on mortality – Janus dies and is reborn
Bodies wither as
Memories fade across the
ravages of time
What will you do to be remembered? Make a difference.
Be unique you. Be bold. Be brave. and Be Happy.
Until next time,
