I'm still standing

I sit here wondering what this year will bring.
I sit here wondering about my apparent diminishing capacity to cope with what seemed quite easy last year.
I sit here hoping for little change, but for everything to change.
I sit here fearing an invasion of my world...for the robbers of time and stagnation born of apathy.
I'm standing now and want to make a difference again...my capacity has just increased and I want to slay my demons of which there are a few...none of which are sitting.

What I'd like to do in 2012...
Try some things I've never experienced before.
Windsurf the English Channel (something I've wanted to do for years)

What I have to do in 2012...
Be realistic...It'll take more than this year to prepare to windsurf the English Channel. I think it will have more impact if I wait until I draw my pension:) Extend the upstairs bathroom instead, and for an encore landscape the back garden.
I also have to stop over-committing myself.

That'll do for now.


  1. I love your I'm Still Standing verse--very poetic. It would make a great quote on a wall or in a scrapbook. The sentiments touch my soul.

    Good luck on that windsurfing adventure! I will look forward to hearing about it someday.

  2. Hi Randi
    We had our goals evening with friends on Saturday and I was pleased that I didn't over-comitted myself. I was realistic for once:)

  3. Love this Ken. I'm wondering what this year will bring too. I also have to stop over committing myself.

    Good luck with all your goals!
