No Resolutions

I have been thinking of the Death Cab song the last couple days...

So this is the new year.
And i don't feel any different.
The clanking of crystal
Explosions off in the distance (in the distance).

So this is the new year
And I have no resolutions
For self assigned penance
For problems with easy solutions

So everybody put your best suit or dress on
Let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
As thirty dialogs bleed into one

I wish the world was flat like the old days
Then i could travel just by folding a map
No more airplanes, or speed trains, or freeways
There'd be no distance that could hold us back.

i love that line "for self-assigned penance with easy solutions." so true. i don't do resolutions, mostly because i'm too afraid to set myself up for immediate failure. :)

but i am focused on repenting, and moving forward in the new year.

happy new year to the sharps!
