New Year! Thank you to everyone who responded to the past two issues
of “Voices From the Hill.” Below are the responses to the questions
for this issue: What is your New Year’s Resolution?
If you’ve broken a resolution in the past, what will you do differently
this year to keep your new resolution?
My New Year’s Resolution is to be more productive with my weekends. Unlike my many past weekends, I plan to press outward a little more—short-trips, arts and culture. Rest and relaxation is important to me and, in many cases, a restful weekend is always my hope. However, we are all learning that life is short. I plan to make my weekends count and to enjoy the excitement coming my way!

or at least to quit it
to the beat or not
to see truly
these are my re-solutions
be it further resolved
