What are your New Year's Resolutions? I would love to share yours with our readers. I am still crafting my own list but here is a start. My resolutions include both travel and personal issues. So I will make myself a bit vulnerable here and let you in on my life.

Extensively hike the Linville Gorge in preparation for a music and book project

Hike the South Mountains trails

Shed those five holiday pounds

Visit a dude ranch

Run at least two road races

Become a better listener

Take my family to Scotland in June

Stay at the Old Stone Inn in Waynesville

Eat more fruit

Learn to meditate regularly and find more time for silence and solitude

Work out at the gym at least four times a week

Learn a new guitar tuning

Learn some new licks on the piano

Laugh more and embarrass my kids with corny jokes

Visit and photograph every NC waterfall
