– To finish Hotter Than That: A Life of Louis Armstrong. (The contract will help!)
– To see fewer plays–and write more thoughtfully about the ones I do see.
– To spend more time listening to music, not in the background or on the fly, but with the total concentration and involvement that it deserves.
– To read Bleak House and War and Peace at long last, and report on my progress in this space.
– To go to the gym four days a week, every week.
– To take more time off.
– To visit the Grand Canyon.
