It's amazing how much you can appreciate things like mobility until it's stripped from you. Now that I am about to get rid of the cane I am constantly thinking about what I will be able to do Yoga.

What would be your biggest fear when it comes to losing a sense?

Would it be sight? Hearing? Taste?

Years ago I found out that a fibrous area on my Clival ridge in the middle of my noggin has given me my absurdly bright sense of smell. I can smell someone walking up behind me long before I can hear them.

Due to this, I am terrified of losing that sense. Would I feel as if I had no balance? Would I feel like I was under-water? How would food taste, or moreover, would it have a taste at all?

It actually scares me to think of, even though the thought of losing the other senses doesn't register that high with me. Blind, okay. Deaf, big deal. No scents???? I might lock myself in a box.

Resolutions are never that as named. The closest I've heard to someone keeping one almost completely was my pal who only missed flossing 2 days this past year.


So, 2010...welcome, and good riddance to 2009.

I have some resolutions, but some are sort of cheating, because they are only short rehab for my hip after surgery.

Here are 10 resolutions I am dedicated to keep:

1. I will wear heels in 2010.

2. I will make sure that I do not forget that cheese is it's own food group and not part of that so-called "Dairy" group as I was taught before.

3. I will insist that there is no ingestion of coffee from the Valero gas station...the "Javalero"...

4. I will continue to make lists.

5. I will wear more red and less of other colors.

6. I promise to floss as necessary, as in...after BBQ.

7. I will adore my friends and family, as it is important.

8. I will continue to maintain my fear of turkeys and slugs...and annelids in general.

9. I will learn to understand the wild and obscure world of digital music storage.

10. I will continue to make lists...wait, I will repeat myself.
