I’m not banning anything this year, but after a conversation with my friend Monique on New Year’s Eve, I realized there are a few things I’d like to do in 2009.
In no particular order, here we go:
Read Moby Dick
I’ve got a bit of a 19th century whaling fetish, I’ve done the museums, read many books, but somehow have missed “the” book. I have three versions to choose from, one old and hand illustrated, one new with no pictures and one on my i-phone. No excuses. This will be the year.

I’ve always had a side consulting business, but this year, I’d like to take it to the next level. Put together a business plan, build out a website and begin to seek out more work as an audience hunter.
Climb Mt. Greylock
I’ve done most of the trails on my side of the mountain, but I’ve yet to make it to the top. It would be wrong, once the road is open, to hike down and walk home, and claim to have hiked the mountain, right?
Celebrate a birthday with some sort of splash.
I’m turning 40 this year, and I’d like to think that my 40s will be my best decade yet, so preparing myself for that milestone. I’d like to do something big to mark the occasion, a party? A trip to Krirpala ? Or maybe just climb to the top of Mt. Greylock?
I may need a reminder, so if you see me, ask me about the big whale, will you?
