2011 and 2012 resolutions.

31st December 2011 Queensland Australia.
Well here it is upon us once more,the end of a year...the start of another. This year we saw and survived many natural disasters,for example...the queensland floods.My city of Ipswich where I lived at the start of the year,flooded and I saw it go underwater,something I hope I never see again.Lives were lost,families left homeless and in the midst of it an army of volunteers arose and mopped up not just sludge and mud but also tears.

It has been a rough year for many with lots of highs and lows.We survived it and are stronger now.
I look back to the start of this year and wonder if I have kept my last year's my shock I find I 'mostly'have.

Yes,I lost a little weight,got healthier,let my hair grow long,got my drivers licence,moved to beautiful Bundaberg,played cool games with my grandchild,helped my mother make a lovely garden,went walking almost every day,joined Facebook,caught up with and found long lost friends (my fault they were lost) spread the truth about 'Fracking' (look it up,it is Not what you may think.) Also I introduced myself to the local 'Green' Members,volunteered to help them in the next election. Made time to read my favourite poets works,wrote a couple of poems myself this year...left my shell more than once by disobeying what 'COMFORT' dictated me to do... I reached out to and make productive contact with several new ,unusual,and even some awesome souls. I met my two new grandsons,I revisited and stood barefoot upon the beach of my childhood (Brighton-Le-Sands)and cried because I felt myself feeling the exact same happiness I felt at 9 years of age...the awe of the inner child has not aged a fraction(this was a wonderful discovery)absent relatives invisibly stood with me as hot eye's water welled down my face and I breathed in the salty air just as I did decades ago. I etched something private in the sand,I know they (though deceased)read it and before the waves crept near my scrawl I turned and walked away,content that I will always be there no matter where or how distant from it my body may be. This I have done in the year of the Rabbit. Tonight,what resolution will I make? year I want to do a book of poetry,I want to create a garden full of colour and fragrance,I want to swim in the ocean at night,I want to climb a mountain,I want to see `La bohème'the opera by Giacomo Puccini.I want to stand under a waterfall and feel it on my back. I want to enter our purple orcard in the local flower show (and win it.)I want to get back to art and finish the art I have started (some started years ago),to submit my nature photos online. Join public protests to free refugees in detention centres. Be a better friend to my offspring's and to all my family. To listen more and talk less.To de-clutter my life by shedding some of the collectables,horde a little less,give a little more,be a little better,believe in my dreams more ,believe in my failings a lot less. Forgive myself and others for pain caused,and allow myself pain for a just cause. These are my New Year Resolutions for 2012...I probably wont tell you if I succeed or not but perhaps The Dragon will tell you.
Happy New Year everyone! I love you. Take care of you.
