New Year's resolutions are quickly said, quickly forgotten, and often quite temporary. As we pass into the next year, I propose a single life-long resolution for you - Make Your Mark. Do something that will live outside of yourself in some fashion. Whatever fashion it takes, Make Your Mark. I'm even going to push one step farther and specify that you should Make a Positive Mark. There is no doubt that negative actions can also make a mark, but do you really want to be known and remembered because you caused pain or anguish? Those whom I know would not, and I suspect most of you reading also would not.

Make Your Mark sounds so easy, but how to do it? Here are some suggestions...


Carve a sculpture. Don't know how? Get a piece of stone, a chisel and a hammer and try. Down the line you'll need a few additional tools - a rasp, some sandpaper and a polishing cloth - but the basic way to accomplish this is really pretty easy. So give it a try. OR...

So, it is now August and the summer, which seems as if it just started last week, is already into its waning months. Oh, we still have the heat and the humidity, I am still going to have plenty of days when I fall asleep with the fan blowing on me and where I am complaining about the heat, but I am already looking at the various shades of green around me with a nostalgic feeling. Winter has its own beauty, no doubt. There are sparkling mornings after an ice storm that make me catch my breath as the sun hits the angled ice crystals. But, my preference is experiencing the snow rarely and, unfortunately, I live in the wrong state for that.

Assignments - So DH says to me last night as I was looking carefully through Spectrum 18 (one of my happy things to do - LOL) that he wants assignments. "Assignments?" I query in return. "What do you mean? Do you want prompts for writing, a goal for artwork, a media in which to produce something, a deadline to meet? What kind of assignments?" "Yes" was his response - LOL.
