Here’s An Idea

Hey, I just came up with a great idea! Let me know what you think of it. Another year has ended. We now find ourselves on the brink of a brand new one. Like standing on a beach staring out across a vast ocean: time now stretches out before us towards unknown shores. It fills us with a mixture of emotions: hope, fear, maybe a little apprehension. What’s out there? Storms? Sea monsters? Seventy-two floating Starbuck’s coffee shops?

I’ve always been fascinated by the reverent awe we give to a new year. Just flip the calendar and suddenly anything’s possible. And since anything’s possible, here’s the idea I had. I’m going to go on a diet!

Well? What do you think? I know, I know. It’s a bit crazy. I mean who starts a diet at the start of a new year? It’s unheard of! But this just might be one of those ideas that’s so crazy, it just might work.

I will, of course, keep you posted.

Happy 2011 . . .

Hmmm… Interesting concept. It’s kinda “out there” but I like it!! I’ve never been one who conforms to society anyway! You got it!
