… yes I might be a bit early for that but being confined mainly to the sofa and bed not being able to concentrate on anything in the last few days has born a few resolutions for 2013.
The good thing about blogging is the fact you can go back and check next year. Am already looking forward to where it will lead me :-).
A few weeks ago I have read about a new book Stephen Fry has brought out. “The ode less travelled” it is called where explains on the one hand that those who are able to speak and read English are also able to write poetry. On the other hand he critisises modern verse though as being watered down and boring as it is mainly free verse looking within the poet.
I thought that a bit arrogant at first but his challenging thesis did not leave my mind. Thetefore I have decided to go on a poetic voyage throughout the centuries and continents and learn about different pietic forms. I will also try them out. A challenge in itself :-).
Having been ill a considerable time of 2012 I have also decided to put more emphasis on exercise and gardening. Both are not only good for your health but also for your creativity. Lets hope the weather will support me :-).
And last but not least having missed my goodreads goal by about 6 books this year I will put more into my reading efforts.
Three worthy resolutions – lets see if I pull through.
So what are your new years resolutions? Do you have any? Are your challenging, highbrow or just plainly non-existent?
Am looking forward to hear from you but for now:
Let’s get the party started ;-)!
