#1 is to lose 15 pounds. Permanently. Lose it AND keep it off. So far since the 1st I have lost 2.
#2 is to stick to a schedule I have made. If I can stick to this schedule, I think good things will happen in my life.
I am hoping that by announcing these resolutions to all the world, I will be able to keep them. If I flub up, everybody in the world will know.
Or rather, everybody in the world could know. Of course, not everybody in the world has a computer, and not everyone who has a computer is on the internet. And out of all the countless hordes of people who do, only a tiny, miniscule fraction of a fraction will ever see this blog. This blog is a very small needle in a humongous haystack. Nevertheless, these resolutions are now public, and if I don't keep them, that will be public too, so I hope that the fear of losing face in such a public way will help me to keep them.
Yesterday I made my first slideshow on iPhoto --- it is so neat! There are 6 different ways it can be presented, and you can have music playing on it, etc. The photos are from back in the late 60's and I was very surprised at how good it turned out. I think I will use one of the photos to paint my next picture from.
And here is a small sketch from an old sketchbook:
after James Montgomery Flagg
Someday I am going to take this in to class and show it to the kids who want to read their book while they are walking in line :)
