Start of a new year

Staying up past midnight on December 31st is an activity of a distant past, but I have other new year traditions.

Typically on January 1st I'd go for a long walk to slow down and savor fresh beginnings & new possibilities. Every new year, a book store holds a sale - any 3 calendars for $10. So one for the pocket book, one for the wall, and one for the desk.

Like many others, I set goals - rather than resolutions - for the year (see previous post). I've don't usually select a word for the year, but this time Matisse supplied one (images from desk calendar).
verve (vûrv) n.
1. Energy and vigor, especially in artistic performance or composition
2. Liveliness: vitality

Great word! Merci, Henri!

Wish you all a new year full of verve!
