Happy New Year

One thing that is clear to me, on this New Year’s Eve, is that I’m really not much of a blogger.  I lack whatever the compunction that motivates others to reveal, discuss, and share everyday details of their lives, current interests, and pursuits.  This reluctance to “share” is surely a factor of my age; I did not grow up in the digital world of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and I have a much more guarded notion of privacy than most younger people.  In addition, I have difficulty embracing the idea that any but close friends and relatives should play witness to my life.  In consequence, I only blog intermittently and largely when motivated by a current event or issue.  Still, there are many baby boomers and beyond who have taken to the blogosphere with aplomb.  I’m just not one of them.

Realistically then, I don’t think that I’ll take as one of my New Year’s resolutions, the clearly uncharacteristic commitment to blog more, but like a lot of others, I do have a list of resolutions.  I intend to read more, exercise more, eat well, take the vitamin D pills that I bought and stuck in the cupboard, and umpteen other, pretty pedestrian, intentions.  I resolve to pause to enjoy my life, as I’m fortunate in so very many ways.  Finally, I resolve to do less housework in the coming year –  I’m very confident that I can achieve that last resolution.  Happy New Year!

  1. I think the right amount of blogging to do is the amount that’s right for you. Intermittent or not, I always enjoy reading your posts and they make me think more deeply about the events and issues you explore. As far as resolutions go, I don’t make New Year’s resolutions per se, but I’m pretty confident that your resolution to do less housework in 2015 is about to go viral! Soon you’ll be the latest internet sensation 😊
