New Year’s Resolutions and A Song

04 Jan

On January 1, 1943, the American folk music legend Woody Guthrie jotted in his journal a list of 33 “New Years Rulin’s.” Nowadays, we’d call them New Year’s Resolutions. Adorned by doodles, the list is down to earth by any measure. Family, song, taking a political stand, personal hygiene — they’re the values or aspirations that top his list. For a clearer view, you can click here to view the list.

My favourites are No’s 13,14, 19, 31  and 33. I wonder which ones you favour.  Happy days to you all.
