comedy that was filmed partially In Oruana movie la currently playing at thaatere In San Antlonlo The Art of the Matter Resolutions Some risky but some artistic I can hear you asking Arent you old enough to quit that silly game of making Older than old enough But what can 1 say Im uddictcd to hope So even though I gave up certain repeated resolutions several years ago I confess that hoping for delayed dreams still teases me into attempting their fulfillment And actually some reinforcement for that altitude came my way during the stressful surprising wornout wonderful year thats just walked through historys pies In a very small book written by Doug Manning minister award winning newspaper columnist and family counselor I found words that make me want to keep on keeping I may have even shared them with you before If so chalk It up to my forgetfulness then be refreshed by the message again Mr Manning saVs There are two great days in lite the day you were born arid the day you discover why you were born We are here to become We arc valuable because of what we are nos what we do Too simplistic for you Maybe go but it gives me the necessary Impetus to become all the good things 1 love in So Im golnf to give in to hope and make few resolutions in spite of the risk involved Yes I If you dont believe just how risky resolutions cttti be you should lake a lip from Calvin thin Impish cartoon character created by Hill Waltmon Elizabeth THEORY Elliott rs tiger Hobbes nus fho Columnist remarkable capacity for human speech asks 6yearold Calvin if hes made any resolutions for the new year The usually imaginative youngster declares Nope I want everything to stuy the same it was year which was lousy but at least Its When Hobbes gives him a look Calvin explains Change Is too disruptive When things are different you have to think about the change and deal with it 1 like things to stay the same so 1 can take everything for granted Besides the longer I live the more complicated everything gets I miy lets here life In the next frame second thought maybe you Should Ignore Calvins fix on resolutions and change arc already loo many people who drag their feet when it comes to new ideas do ahead Take the risk Hisolve to be anhtlcl Now dont panic Im not suggesting that you take up the violin But iilling your ears with the sound of It couldnt hurt And you dont need to put paint to canvass just resolve to add more color to your Put your rightside bruin in gear and see what happens Thats the problemsolving side you know and If youre like the rest of us you have your share of problems to solve When you let your creative spirit tackle the tough ones the results can be amazing And though your vocal range may span four notes though your feet were not destined for more than walking though your poetic attempts are limited to limericks theres an artist in every one of you Its that part of you that dreams of a kinder world decorating it with all things bright
