Cheers and Peace!

Resolutions: Some people love them, others abhor them. I fall into the former category, hoping to control the universe, or at least my own behavior, through my resolve. In that light, I reread last year’s resolution entry—discovering the unexpected drawback of accountability.

Some years I need an excel spreadsheet to organize the ‘new me’, but this year I’m keeping it simple, which may be the hardest task of all. I woke up to 2010 to read this wonderful thought sent by my friend, choreographer Ann Robideaux--

Forget the Ten or Twelve Commandments. There is one commandment and that is LOVE.

It’s a great sentiment to start the year, so I’m going to make that my number one resolution—to love life wholeheartedly, to love others, even those I’d like to strangle, especially those I’d like to strangle, to love the challenges and see them as opportunities.

As the late Harold E. Carter used to end his every letter to me, I shall end today’s entry in kind, Cheers and Peace.

It's true, the struggle is really when you discover 'grace'

Thanks for all of our great years Nadine, and looking forward to many more. Love to the family.

HEC is still the king. I am so glad to hear from you, to know you remember him, and to read the thoughtful posting about grace as well. Cheers and DOUBLE peace to you Nadine Dearest!
