Not a resolution
I've never made any for the new year to come, but I do like the idea of an "intention," as someone suggested. The year now departing has been a very eventful one and it won't be remembered as a favorite. As always, though, I am pleased to report that I do believe that I have accumulated at least one full year's worth of additional wisdom and that I haven't backslid on the Path to Progress. I never, ever commit myself to be anywhere or do anything unless I am certain that I will be there or do it, but I'm chary of making such commitments. I intend to make more in 2008. Not to make a commitment or a decision is to make one by default. It's good to remember this.
