The original fifty things were all over the place. At the check-ins in March and June, I considered three things I was doing towards those fifty things and three things to which I could apply more focus. I want to do that again.

A little thing that I am managing to do is to drink more water. Sounds kinda hokey but hey, we have to take success where we can find it, no? I don't really know if it matters but I am doing it. I have this purple Camelbak that I can easily flood with ice cubes and water and it follows me to work, around the house, out in the yard. Wherever. Again, don't know if it matters but "they" tell me it is a good thing to drink water so I am doing that. Whatever.
Write, write, and write some more. Okay, so I already claimed this as a success in March, but I want to claim it again. I am enjoying writing even though sometimes even I don't get what I am trying to say. That right brain takes over and, even if it doesn't make sense, I like it. It's the same way with my painting. Item #2 on the January list was to make time for weekly painting and, for the most part, I have done that. I don't know where those paintings come from. Most of them I like; a few are unattractive to me. But the right brain takes over and the left is along for the ride. Nice!
I can put #33 and #42 in one wish: I can notice more color and detail in the world and I can take more photographs. I am attracted to design, color, detail. What I really need to do is organize my on line photo library. When posting on the blog, I very seldom turn to photos other than those I've taken myself. I would like to expand my collection and look for that which I have yet to really see. It's fun.
Mid-September..... But I don't have to get everything done before December 31. In fact, when I look at the items I originally listed, I see lots that are really life long ambitions. They are goals that will not be satisfied in one year. And some of them are vague and immeasurable. Maybe those are the best ones?
