I found this keychain in the Smoky Mountains. Biographical or prophetic?
Headed Somewhere…Resolutions 2019
“If you don't know where you are going, you'll end up someplace else.” Yogi Berra
I read with interest and dismay many of my friends posts about their resolutions, ideas and plans for 2019. Interest, because I love my friends, and I enjoy learning what’s on their minds and hearts. Dismay, because I had no desire to write such a thing myself.
At this point in 2018, I had plans. I knew what workshops I wanted to attend for photography and writing, I’d registered and paid my deposits. I had plans with family, plans for summer camp, plans with friends. Plans, plans, plans. I knew where I was going.
This year? Nada. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Blank calendar. I couldn’t even generate any enthusiasm for figuring it out. Have you ever been there?
I have a new journal, but I didn’t even start writing in it until ten days into the new year.
Something will surely stir me from these doldrums, but for now I’m just waiting. I don’t like waiting. I like knowing where I’m going and how I’m going to get there.
I’ve put my own spin on Yogi’s quote above:
If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you get there?
If I find the answer, I’ll let you know.
In the meantime, I’m headed somewhere.

I love reading, writing, and photography! Spending time with my family and friends around the kitchen table is about the best occasion I know. I'm just beginning to stretch my creative wings, so here's to gentle breezes and clear skies.
