January is almost gone, but still this time of year inspires me to dream up all sorts of resolutions and ideas for the coming year. And the cold really kicks my daydreaming of tropical locales and days at the beach into high gear. Between thoughts of Jamaica and what creative ventures I have ahead, it can seem like I’m doing a lot of dreaming. But that isn’t as unrealistic as it seems – in fact icon Gloria Steinem says that dreaming is akin to planning. So instead of telling my friends I’m dreaming of a trip overseas, I can say I’m planning. Happy Manic Monday.
