I have been keeping a journal since 2006, which, I believe, was my last year in Wales. I really love writing and drawing in them because they are something that I do just for myself and I know nobody else will ever read them. Sometimes I really look forward to the end of the day so I can sit in a half darkened room and listen to music while I think, draw and write.

Every year I use the journal’s first page to write my new year’s resolutions. I think about what I want to write carefully and I take my resolutions quite seriously, referring to them throughout the whole year. I already have my new journal and while I was thinking about what I want to achieve during 2013, I was looking at the things I wrote exactly one year ago today. Some things I managed to do, some things I didn’t, but overall, I’m happy with how the year turned out.

    • É uma atitude normal num liberal, cara Ana Cristina.Além de que a canção, de tão má, está ao nível do coiso, não haja? Estão assim como que bem um para o outro.Mas que é uma delícia (e democrática, ainda por cima; pelo que percebi foi votada pelo "povo") é. O povo unido jamais será vencido.

    • Hey Rick,What can I say man …. you spoke very well ….. all from the heart. I think the essence of this all is ….. the meaning of life …. having a passion ….. being able to share this passion …. exchanging energy ……. exchanging knowledge …… and being guided, not just by an icon but by a guy who is really down to earth and willing to make CONTACT.Rick, imo you’re one of the main reasons this blog is as alive as it is. I hope you will do this for many years to come. And of course …… HAPPY BIRTHDAY !! And don’ t worry …. there is nothing wrong being 46 … I can tell !
