New Year Resolutions & all the best for '12 y'all!

In no particular order here goes for 2012:
  • Rock climbing – Maybe a kindred spirit? A perfect way to unwind, and there are good places around here.
  • Put a sock in it and listen to people
  • Join the community
    Gloucester & environs: Jump in! – there’s loads happening.
  • Learn Spanish
  • Ride shortboards
  • Surf Nova Scotia
  • Cook more
  • Hike again - someplace different? Same in 1 day? Both?
  • Finish stack of books hiding under my bedside table.
  • Take a remedial guitar class – the acoustic is under an inch of dust
  • Be more organized in my daily workflow
  • See more movies. Not a single theatre-movie in '11!
  • Eat more green in every sense – 2009 – 2011 saw huge advances in this area, keep ‘em flyin’.
  • Take a surf/travel trip – Tortola was amazing (so much so I’d go right back again too) – but Europe - Cote Basque - North Devon - Ireland. As said in 2011 as 2012.
  • Give back – I've been pretty fortunate all along. Something’s out of balance – my point: give “something” back – I don’t know how, what, or when; but what better way to thank our lucky stars?
  • The B.C. (wtf!): tall tall order, but sometimes you gotta say wtf. SUP? Lay-down paddleboard? Dory? Kayak? (gag) Stay tuned.
  • Timeliness – a recycled resolution from a year ago – improved, but much room for improvement – do or do not, there is no try.
  • Focus – the main thing: keeping the main thing the main thing.
  • needs and wants – separate but not equal
