I'm not a big fan (if at all) of NY resolutions.

It's not that they never stick, as you'll see me say often, we have wants and needs but we don't will these: they arise, and that's that.

That doesn't mean we might not want to change our lives, do something different or...,well, you know, like, argh, makes things so much better.

I get it.

But in the end, as fatalistic as it might sound, this moment is all you'll ever have, and it would be as well to try to produce a prompt, instruction or (dare I say) a mantra to remind you of that.


Because life is fleeting, and if all you're ever doing is wishing for something else, you'll miss what's right here, right now.

Deep bows for 2020.
