Happy New Year!
I have nothing especially profound to say about the new year, but I know people who do. Visit here and here for reflections and encouragement to keep on keeping on.
I'm just making use of this first day of 2008, a brand-new, virtually unblemished year, to do something I've read about 'round the internet, and always wanted to try. It's called "pay it forward," and is simply a way to pass on the blessing of receiving a hand-made gift. I signed up for Pay it Forward here . The rules are thus:
"I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.”
Actually, I can pretty much assure you that I will send a doily to those who sign up here (not the one pictured!), and that it will not be white. The rest of it is pretty accurate, although I shall try to be as prompt as possible!
I have many plans and thoughts swirling about in my head, but not everything is ready for prime time and the glare of the blogosphere. The most recent thing I planned on this blog was to post every day in December, and I think we all know that didn't exactly happen, although I did break the non-posting cycle, and I hope to post regularly (not necessarily daily) in 2008.
So, Happy New Year!
