Try What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it? To try.  There are so many things I’d like to try this year.  New food.  New cities.  New homes.  I’d like to try and get my violin […]

Friendship How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst? I have a wonderful, wonderful friend whom I’ve known for the past 2.5 years.  I met her in the summer of 2008 — she had also gone to the U. of St. […]

Appreciate What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it?

Action.  When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step? You know, I got all excited about this prompt until I realized that part of what I’ve been trying to do for the last few days, and throughout this month-long exercise, is make a concentrated effort […]

Body Integration This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body? Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present? Hmm.  I’m not sure I understand exactly what this question is trying to do.  I remember one moment in particular where my […]
