I love New Year's, I love New Year's Day way more than New Year's Eve. That's because it's not the parties, and celebrations that I love, they're fun but not all that. For me, it's the calendar, and planning, and lists that I love. I've always been a list maker and a planner. I relish the New Year because it is an opportunity to sit down with the brand new day planner and make plans for the new year, and lists of goals and ideas. It's the gift of a clean slate. This year I'm planning projects and shows, and races, and travel mostly. And I've got a great new "2009 Artful Agenda" to spend the afternoon with. It's a long standing tradition for me, so Happy New Year everyone!
