Two posts in one today, this first day of 2012.

I started 2012 standing on a plastic chair on a roof in South Yarra. I started 2012 with arms around me, leaning on the shoulder of a man who loves me very much. I started 2012 with red toenails. I started 2012 with a skirt on. I started 2012 with pizza in my belly. I started 2012 with a wheel of brie (yeah, I ate about half of it. Take that, 2011 belly!). I started 2012 watching fireworks. I started 2012 with a head full of resolutions, as always.

I just found this amazing resolutions list attributed to Woodie Guthrie, posted on Facebook.   Isn’t it great?

Wake up and fight!
