Expand My Horizons

By C. LaRene Hall

The first thing on my agenda for this year’s resolutions is to expand my horizons. I’m not sure if this means that I’m to increase my horizons or to work on developing them.

I have always loved quotes by Mark Twain and think this somehow fits here.

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

This year I’m planning to travel with one of my daughters. We haven’t completed the plans yet, but they are underway. While I’m gone, I’ll explore and do lots of investigating for stories already started. There will be plenty of time to dream as well as discover new things.

I’m going to try other types of writing and see where that takes me. I love doing different things – I always want to go somewhere I’ve never been before. I hate doing the same things over and over. Different to me is good.

That sounds like a marvelous plan, both the writing and the traveling. Be sure and tell us how it goes!
