New Year Resolutions

I had been stumped for new years resolutions for years - so I asked my therapist (no really!). She made me realise that goals are good, and there was just a few simple guidelines about them. ie. they must be achievable, it had to be something I was interested in achieving, there should be just a hint of satisfaction or challenge about them, and that they can be given enough priority in the context of day to day activities. It came to me clear as day once I realised all this. I am resolving to join Townsville Brass. Whether I end up the conductor, become a soloist or just have a minor part in their second or third tier bands doesn't really matter. I've been away from it for so long (while people I knew when I was there over 15 years ago are still there), that it will have the "prodigal son returns" feel to it. I am looking forward to the first practice on the 24th of January.

My resolution is to be more Catholic this year. Probably this is obvious already...

I guess you could have more children, but otherwise, how much more catholic could you get? :)

So, how did your practice go? :)

Very well. They got straight into tough test pieces in preparation for the contest in Bundaberg at easter. Challenging but fun. Very much like sport in that we have a warm up and a cool down piece!
