Every year, millions of people make resolutions on New Year’s Eve. They join gyms or cut their alcohol intake. Some consider changing careers. Others make frivolous ones like, eat dessert first. OK, that’s one I can get behind.
The problem with resolutions is that we make them, and mean them in the moment, but they have the average shelf life of a carton of milk. By mid-January, we’re back to our hectic lives, our resolutions and good intentions tossed aside like wrapping paper on Christmas morning.
Last year, in a blog entry on my webpage, I listed the following resolutions:
1. Eat better and healthier
2. Up my writing game
3. Don't sweat the small stuff.
Did okay on the first, on and off. Need to do much better this coming year. Did the second, but again I can do much better. And the third is kind of a personal mantra anyway.
This year, I'm thinking about resolutions for the world. And here’s my list:
Wishing all of you, and yours, the very Happiest & Healthiest 2020!!!!
Angel of Death
December 29, 2019
Thanksgiving is a busy time of year for Smiling Dog Books. Thoughts of Black Friday shoppers, turkey, and The Aunties’ dueling dressing recipes should be all that’s on Addie Foster’s mind. But when an old man dies of seemingly natural causes at a local senior center, a friend of the victim challenges Addie Foster to prove it’s really murder. She wonders if the death is somehow related to the latest in a series of terrifying nightmares she’s had. Will Addie, along with her BFF Grey, The Aunties, and her boyfriend Detective Wolfe be able to solve the crime before another resident dies? Or will Addie’s visions lead her to trouble again?
