Graveyard of Resolutions

Graveyard of Resolutions by D. B. Mauldin

No resolutions for me this year

All past resolutions have been broken

None of them even leaving a token.

I have made them, said them

written them down on a card

only to find them dead, living in a graveyard.

The graveyard of the dead, dying, and broken

unfulfilled past resolutions

never receiving devotion.

Today I wanted to pass along this blog from the Old Farmer’s Almanac about the history of New Year’s Resolutions.  I found it interesting and hope you will too.
