New Year’s Resolution

original haiku and colourful digital abstract art by Anna Cull

There’s always so much going on… so much to see and do. The demands for my attention seem to grow exponentially with every passing year. Meanwhile I’m working on several new songs, two old paintings, and the posts in my WordPress Reader are starting to pile up again. Somehow “everyone else” seems to be getting out there and doing more, achieving more, being more. But perception is a funny thing and is not to be trusted. NOT to be trusted. So I’m keeping my goal simple this year ~ not that I have ever been one for making new year’s resolutions ~ but the word found itself, quite unbidden, into my first haiku of 2023 and I ran with it. Here’s to an excellent year of doing the one thing we can all do better than anyone else ~ as it says in the song, why don’t you be you and I’ll be me?

Happy Christmas from New Zealand

A small, gold bauble,
Lightly flitting here and there,
Making Christmas bright.

Wherever you find yourself this Christmas, whatever the circumstances, it is still the season of love and light and family. May the holidays be whatever you need them to be ~ and wishing you all a happy and healthy new year.
