Resolutions for 2009

Frankly, I’m surprised at how many people have been reading my blogs. And very grateful. I want to thank all of you for your support. Whether you agree with my views or not is unimportant. That you take the time to visit and read and comment is important. And for that, I thank you all very much.

This is my final post for 2008 – my resolutions for the New Year. They’re in no particular order.

1. To read at least 12 books. Or, better still, at least one book each month. Anything remotely resembling a piece of legislation will not count.

2. To see at least 6 Bhutanese movies. And in the theatre; not at home. Anything on TV, naturally, won’t count.

3. To relearn my mother tongue – Khengkha. This was the first language I spoke. I forgot both Khengkha and Dzongkha when, barely 5 years old, I was sent to a boarding school in India. How best to relearn Khengkha? Spend more time with my mother.

4. To go on a trek. Will I ever be able to do the Snowman? I’ve been thinking about it for almost 10 years now.

5. To learn a new hobby. Dramyen? Golf? Gardening? Fly fishing? The possibilities are endless.

6. To keep blogging. It’s hard work. But enjoyable. And, even if one person reads it, well worth it.

7. To redesign this blogsite. Too many people have complained that my blogsite is too much like me – boring!

Happy New Year.
