all the best and forget the rest
It is the second week of January in what the astrologers and various other morale-boosters promote as an auspicious year provided we pay attention to our own foibles and put some positive back into play. Many of us find ourselves back in routines we had gladly shrugged off pre-holiday and are putting into effect versions of 2013’s first Two Cents Tuesday Challenge theme – Resolution.
Across the Bored had asked “What does resolution represent to you?” Is it the sharp outlines and incredible detail of a macro shot, a settlement in St. Thomas or some awesome Mahavishnu guitar orchestrations… perhaps an idea you had on the eve of this new year has changed – whether broken or fulfilled, accomplished or midstream… We would love to see your vision.
For all those who are new readers to Across the Bored, some great entries and the guidelines for this fortnight’s challenge can be found here. Need more info or want to browse past themes? Have a look at HOW DOES THIS WORK.
Like Arthur Dent, circumstances beyond our control can sometimes infringe upon our routines and interrupt the flow of what we have become accustomed to calling our daily life. While the end of the year by no means compares to a Vogon constructor fleet ready to eliminate all earthly life in favour of a new galactic thoroughfare, it does hold in its last ticking minutes the promise of change. Affirmations of any kind signal the desire and courage to go forward into the future with purpose – while some pledges will be successful and others fall by the wayside, what we can ask for is to see things in a different light, view the ordinary in a new way and take into consideration that there is another side to every story.
As it is the first day of January and we have all decided upon directions for the coming year, the Two Cents Tuesday Challenge proposes a – Resolution.
“What does resolution represent to you?” – the sharp outlines and incredible detail of a macro shot, that vow made to oneself on the 31st, a settlement in St. Thomas or some awesome Mahavishnu guitar orchestrations…
We would love to see your vision.
