Hi 2015, itâ€™s nice to meet you.Â Since our relationship is rather new and still optimistic, I thought I would make some goals before I kick you to the curb a year from now.
Hike to Grey Owlâ€™s Cabin
As WendyÂ noted, we have never done our expedition to Grey Owlâ€™s cabin.Â Itâ€™s a two day walk into the backwoods of Prince Albert National Park.Â It should be a lot of fun.
Explore & photograph some great urban locations
I hate to think of Moose Jaw as a great urban location but it does have some great architecture as does Calgary and Winnipeg.Â My camera and I need to do some some travelling and exploring.Â Letâ€™s not take too long to reflect on the fact that Moose Jaw has some of the best architecture in Saskatchewan.
So the plan is to spend a day photographing and exploring Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, and hopefully a couple of days in Calgary.
Make progress on my book
Last year I was sitting in a Saskatoon City Council meeting listening to our finest elected leaders talk about residential snow clearing and then voting on cleaning some of our streets.Â At the same time I was following Calgary City Council make plans for taking over the world.
Since then I have read more about the formation of cities than I care to think of.Â Why do some cities turn into Calgary or New York City while others turn into Cleveland, Detroit or Regina?Â Why does it feel like we are wasting the boom?Â Why do some cities like Saskatoon allow themselves to be defined by low taxes while other cities defined by the quality of life?
Integrate Evernote into my workflow
I have some big plans for Evernote in 2015 but the biggest is incorporating it into my workflow for columns, roundtables, and this blog.
I use it right now and find it invaluable but I know I can more with it in the future.
Enjoy 2015 more than 2014
2014 was okay but I didnâ€™t enjoy it as much as I wanted to. Â Here is to more coffees on patios, more late nights on decks, and more fires in the backyard.
