Goals for 2012
Every year I like to pick a word that is the center of my goals for the year: 2008 was Passion, 2009 was Improvement, 2010 was Writing, 2011 was Writing and Publication, and 2012 is … Writing! But what else would I like to do in 2012?
The word for 2012 is Create. I do want to focus on creative endeavors that influence my writing, like making a musical quilt (details to follow in another post); finishing crochet and knitting projects; continuing to play piano, violin, viola, and djembe; finding a weaving loom that will fit in my apartment; and painting with cardboard and tempura paints. Examples of my work from 2011 (cardboard, tempura, painted with my fingers):

For 2012, I will focus on creating in the following areas:
Happy New Year!
