" I am open to the guidance of synchronicity, and do not let expectations hinder my path." Dalai Lama

Dalai Lama says that one should keep expections on a even keel. Too high expectations and you are bound to experience disappointment. Too low expectations will lead to a feeling of despair. I do try to live this way and it seems to work for me. That said...here is what I looking forward to in 2009:

Book: The English release of The Angel's Game by Spanish writer Carlos Ruiz Zafon. It's a prequel to one of my favorite books The Shadow of the Wind. (May 2009)

Music: Bruce Springsteen new CD - Working on a Dream - (1/27/09)

Movies: Revolutionary Road & Inkheart (1/23/09) Star Trek (5/8/09) Terminator Salvation (5/22/09) Land of the Lost (6/5/09) - yes - based on the 70's series and Will Ferell is in it.

Destination: A couple of days in Pt. Pleasant, NJ & Cooperstown

Other: Enjoying my husband. To my son coming home on vacations. Enjoy the new union contract and the inflow of some extra cash - which means new carpet, tv, and maybe some living room furniture. Many ice coffee's with writing friends at Borders, and the news that I will be published (using Law of Attraction here).

Peace on Earth would be nice too but as the Dalai Lama says one shouldn't have high expectations.

What are you looking forward to in 2009?

Are you going to submit Playing for Keeps to Samhain or Wild Rose Press this year??

Still waiting on Harlequin. My positive imaging - Law of Attraction - is centered with them as I work on Love By Design.

Those all sound like great things to look forward to in 2009 - especially the getting published part.

I'm hoping to get my first novel finished in 2009. Hopefully the year will be good to both of us.
