Play more music, whether anyone can stand to listen to it or not.

I bought a Mediterranean cooking magazine yesterday. I am resolved to try many of the recipes. Made a nice Moroccan soup last night. Will make Koshari tomorrow.

I am resolved to finish 2 quilts that I started last year: One wool applique and one pieced.

I am working on Debussy's Preludes and am resolved to learn them this year. (I'm about ready to record Voiles and will post it when I do.)

I am resolved to buy a snow blower.

Do more art. And focus on and appreciate what I have, rather than what I am missing.

Exercise more.

Play more piano.

Those two shouldn't be hard, since I did very little of either this year. There's nowhere to go but up.

I'm trying to come up with a mid-life shift in attitude away from self-improvement and toward self-care. I enjoy playing the piano and I enjoy some exercise. What I really need to do is make more spaces in my days for things that are nurturing. Instead, I strike things off a to-do list and then I'm so burned out that I don't have the get-up-and-go to look for a new piece to play or to put on exercise clothes and hit the yoga mat, even though I know that I would enjoy those things more than an hour on the computer.

I've made some small inroads here. Let's see how 2018 goes.

Yes! Add play more music to my list. Our son is visiting, he has been taking voice and guitar lessons, and I told him to bring his music - we’ve been playing (uke, guitar, piano) and singing every day and it’s been really fun.

Maybe I'll take up nose flute! Yes, it's played with the nose; the shape of your mouth changes the pitches. Plus, if it strap it on your face, you can play Uke at the same time!!

Self-cultivation vs. self-improvement.

I like this attitude: self-improvement resolutions imply that something's wrong with you that you're supposed to fix. Self-cultivation is about doing more of the things that bring you joy. Let's do it!

Or pick the nose flute. I'm not going to do that either.
