We’ve talked in the past about our need to grow, to change, to become happier people, to have broader minds, to be deeper thinkers: In short, to be a better person.
While I don’t have a lot of goals for 2013 (Never, EVER call them resolutions), I do have three. First, I want to write every day. Someday, I want to sit in an Italian coffee shop and write my fourth book, like my friend Gina. But to get there, unlike Gina, I will need practice, practice and more practice. I will probably need an editor and a ghost writer but that’s another year’s goal. In the mean time, I will write for this blog, my study blog, my prayer blog, and competitions. I’m burning up the morning hours with fingers flying!
Second, I want to read. I want to read a lot. See Curt read? Reading is fun. Last year I knocked off a couple dozen books and that was after starting in earnest in June. This year, I believe I can finish nearly 50. Between audio books and reading actual pages, I have a real shot at this. I’ll consume books about history and art, biographies and novels. I will learn about diseases of the body and the healing of the soul. That’s not a bad way to spend a year.
Finally, I want to experience Cheese. I want to eat 100 kinds of cheese in the coming year. I want to get the best options in my mouth and compare them, savor them and learn about them. I want to know where they are made, their ingredients, their strengths and weaknesses. I want to know what wine goes with which cheese. I want to experience the wonder that is milk turned into solid form.
So, that’s it. Those are my big three. Write, Read, and Eat.
Hey, I guy can dream. Can’t he?
