I like new starts, that refreshing feeling of sloughing off the old, adorning myself with the new.
I was born in the Year of the Snake. The idea of a snake ridding itself of its old skin to reveal a glistening new one, appeals.
And as this year is the 'Year of the Snake' in the Chinese calendar, its even more fitting (so to speak).
I haven't really made any new year resolutions. There are dreams and wishes I'd like realised - the publication of my 3rd poetry book, 'Born To A Red-headed Woman' beings one.
I'd like to continue hanging out with family and friends, keep with the little bit of gardening I'm doing, create some knitting, go for walks, collect beach-glass, keep taking photos, keep blogging ...
... dipping my toes in a fountain somewhere in France (aged 25)
The main focus for this year will be the planning and execution of a trip to France & Germany and the celebration of my 60th birthday with my husband, family and friends in Paris in June. Excited!
