Some readers have introduced the idea of having a Word for the year instead of Resolutions. I’ve thought about it and chosen my Word. It’s Dream. Instead of being busy chasing last year’s dreams, I will pause and reconsider. What are my dreams? What have I pushed aside and forgotten? What does my heart long for? I hope to re-discover hidden pleasures that used to give me joy. And even as I accept the unpleasant truths in the current reality, I should also try to dream of how things might be better. So I shall Dream and name my heart’s desires, at least to myself. After all, I need to know what I want in order to go about making it so.
