The best laid plans of mice and men often go pear-shaped.
For one reason and another my plans for this year’s Christmas and New Year’s holidays did not work at all, and I had to spend the holiday season alone in the garret again. And, being alone over the holidays is incredibly depressing.
I had wanted to go to the USA to spend the holidays with friends, and I had even gone so far as to book and pay for my airline tickets ~ (a non-refundable $800). But, that didn’t work out at all. I did’t go to the USA or any where father or more exciting than my local store.
I have resolved never to spend the Christmas and New Year’s holidays in the garret ever again.
I have one other New Year’s Resolution; to do a lot more of the things I want to do, things that will help me to achieve my goals, desires, and dreams, and to do a Hell of a lot less of the things other people might want me to do.
To help me with that I have a beautiful workbook sent to me by a friend; ‘Rituals For Living, Dreambook + Planner‘. If I work through it diligently I should get a very clear idea of what I really want from life.
One of the things I most want to is to go back to Santa Monica ~ which means going to California again, and I very much like long road trips in California. Especially if I can find a cool girl to ride shotgun in the car with me.
