This will be short and sweet.
I don't usually make , or keep, New Years resolutions but this year will be different!
So hear goes.
This year I will pull back from working in schools. Over the years, beginning in the sixties, I have worked with countless people, influenced some but only really worked with a dozen or so like minds - and most of these people a number of years ago. I will just keep up with my reading ,blogging and writing. I still have one major presentation to make late in January and will pick my presentations in the future.
I am going to put my energy into my garden which is becoming my latest enthusiasm - I have built several bridges and walkways and planted lots of new plants. I intend to spend an hour a day in my garden.
I am going to take up painting again -well I never really took it up but this year I will make a real effort.
That should be enough to keep me busy.
All the best to every one for the New Year!
Hell I turn 70 this month - others can hold up the creative teaching flag from now on!

PS I said 'pulling back' not giving up - putting my energy where it counts most with those inspirational creative teachers; the future leaders.
