I don’t make New Year’s res­o­lu­tions but I did write a man­i­festo at the begin­ning of our six week camp­ing trip last sum­mer. A dec­la­ra­tion of my inten­tions for the time away from our nor­mal rou­tine were writ­ten on an eas­i­ly acces­si­ble index card that was shoved in my pock­et, my back­pack, the dash of the van or wher­ev­er I was most like­ly to see it. And, when we returned home, I car­ried it in my bag where I would see it every time I went for my keys.

What served me well on my vaca­tion con­tin­ues to serve me well at home, and at the risk of sound­ing trite, has made home a lit­tle more like vaca­tion.

A little worse for wear.

A lit­tle worse for wear.

Man­i­festo, res­o­lu­tion, inten­tions, mantra what­ev­er you want to call it I plan to con­tin­ue it on into 2016.


How about you? Do you make res­o­lu­tions? Man­i­festos? A word of the year (which I can’t resist since I love indi­vid­ual words so much)? A theme?
