Oh, how I love basking in the optimistic idealism that follows the dawn of a new year! In 2014, I’m resolving to take flight in an air balloon, cover at least three summer music festivals for Tour Death, assist with an archeological dig in hopes of uncovering some dino bones, give acupuncture a whirl (freaky deaky needles!!), read more books, and see a World Cup game live (Viva Brazil!).
If you’re still struggling to come up with your own set of resolutions, you might glean some inspiration from Woody Guthrie’s “New Years Rulin’s,” written by the Dust Bowl Troubadour himself in 1942.
