dear-hearts, hello there.
i'm moseying right along with my resolutions. in addition to the items i shared with you the other day, one of my big-ticket items is to plan my south america trip, get a grip on spanish, learn bass guitar, and journal. every single day, i've been making progress on these goals. for example, i've begun more intensive research of individual countries. the internets have been so helpful in this respect, as there is not an abundance of specific information available in books at my library pertaining to Colombia or Venezuela, for example. bk & i are having our first Spanish session tonight with the pimsleur Spanish program i did find at our neighborhood library. bass guitar? i've always gravitated toward the bass line (i played tuba through college in concert and jazz bands...i know, major nerd alert, and one of the reasons i knew bk was the one for me was when he lent me a bag of bootleg tapes feature my favorite bassist of all time... john kahn) and have been warming this goal on the backburner of my life for years. it's time. i have begun researching the kind of instrument i will buy and the rudiments of playing. it's an exciting time at casa de loves whales. this is one of the reasons i love resolutions!
