Caroline Bock-BEFORE MY EYES

Looking forward to .... Downtown Abbey, Anjelica Huston, Writing Adult and more!

I have been hesitant this year to set resolutions, so instead, I've put together a list of things I am looking forward to in 2012...

-Watching the new season of Downtown Abbey starting this Sunday on PBS!

-Starting a new novel  -- a sexy, disturbed female executive,an adult work. Enough said. 

-Watching Smash on NBC, at least for Anjelica Huston! 

-Reading the classics.  I don't know which ones yet, but I feel like I have some significant gaps in my literary knowledge.  For example, I like this new quote I found: "The greatest gift is a passion for reading.  it is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind.  It is moral illumination." Elizabeth Hardwick.   But then I had to look up who Elizabeth Hardwick was (literary critic, novelists, helped establish New York Review of Books).  Am thinking of attempting Moby Dick, again.  Other ideas?  

-Attempting to write something completely different.  I don't know what, yet! 

-Getting physical -- getting back in to touch with my body -- (I'm writing it this way because I hate to say exercise. It's useless, for me, to have a resolution, to exercise x number of times a week).   But this could involve a broader scope... meditation... and, yes, going to the Y and working out body parts.

-Being more 'there' for those  I care deeply about ... being there, in the moment, for them.  One of those moments, drinking hot chocolate with daughter, is here. 

-Last thought, promoting LIE -- my debut young adult novel -- am doing several visits and workshops at Long Island schools in 2012 -- and am available for more in the Long Island, Westchester and Southern CT. areas.  

What are you looking forward to?

Hiya, I'm really glad I have found this information. Today bloggers publish just about gossips and internet and this is actually irritating. A good blog with interesting content, this is what I need. Thank you for keeping this site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can't find it.
