Begin As You Mean to Go On

For the past five years or so, I've been posting a photo of what I'm doing on New Year's Day (usually knitting and reading, around midnight if I've managed to stay up) on facebook along with the caption of "begin as you mean to go on". Since I haven't posted on facebook for months and think that I'm done with it, I'll do it here.


It's a small thing, and I don't really think that it's any kind of insurance that my 2019 will be filled with lots of reading, knitting, and shooting my bow, but it's more like paying attention to what I'm doing and how I spend my time. Because I'm also thinking about this quote from Annie Dillard:


So begin as you mean to go on, and spend your days in 2019 on all manner of good things.
