A couple of weeks ago, I responded to the twitter hashtag #inthisdecade with the following: “#inthisdecade I will do my master’s degree, plant a community orchard, become a master beekeeper, publish a poem, and record another album.”
And it seems I might be well on my way to two of those things – what with my bees for spring delivery ordered and some interest in putting a community orchard in at Clinton Park (it seems to have gathered momentum without me doing anything and now I’m waiting to find out if the Parks Board is willing to donate some space to the venture.)
I didn’t think very long to come up with that short list of goals – maybe 30 seconds and those were the first things that came out – at the very least indicating what is top of mind at the start of 2011. I’m sure that many more things will come to mind in the intervening years. I’m hopeful, you know? And I’ve got some plans.
