Happy New Year everyone
I hope you all had a great year like I did
What New Year resolutions are you going to make? And will you keep them?
Myself, of course I've resolved get a lot better on the fiddle. Nothing else really
Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of ..... What was I saying????
Happy New Year!
I made a New Years' Resolution to quit making New Years' Resolutions. That was 22 yrs ago, and I am still managing to keep that one! LOL

I don't make them in general but I am planning to start my annual winter diet after the first. I do it every year because in Alaska, it's really easy to gain weight in the winter. I go hard at it and faithfully from Jan. 1 till I leave to go work for the Yukon Quest (our 1000 mile international sled dog race). unfortunately, it starts Feb. 1 this year. I don't think one month of "the diet" is going to do it.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
Happy new year all. My resolution is to take a little timeout every day. Say 5-10 minutes to listen to some good music, play a instrument or write. Been kind of stressful last months, so would be a good change to introduce something like that. Keeping it simple this year and only have one.

Mine will be to learn all I can as a beginner, and to practice/play 5x per week. Every other year 'learn violin' was on my list. Well I got a tiny start at least, in December this year.
