Anybody make resolutions? Mine is to look more carefully at how I spend my time. Am I always doing what is best for me or do I spend time watching trash TV?
I also plan to read more which is a resolution I make nearly every year. I think I found a way to help jump start the reading process for me this year though. I plan to read a bunch of plays. You can read a good play in about an hour or so. While large novels or even some good religious books take more time. I think reading a play a day might give me a sense of accomplishment and encourage me to read a lot more. Besides–they’re fun. I’ve already read Doubt after seeing the movie and now I’m reading The Weir tonight which I have seen on Broadway. I bought a book of Arthur Miller and Harold Pinter plays. Pinter died the other day as well so condolences to his fans and family–what a great writer!
Lastly, after reading the book, Marley and Me and then seeing the movie this week, I realize that I love my dog and that my time with him is very limited. So I want to try to spend a lot of time working with him and taking care of him. I love taking the long walk with him every night. It probably knocks a few more pounds off of me too!
