My New Year Resolutions

See if you can work out my resolutions from this video I slapped together this afternoon. It's my first one and it's very rough, but it was fun!

Edited 2/1/08

Woops! Forgot to credit the music: by Sallie Campbell and Ian Thompson. Many thanks!


  1. another project to do with clouds perhaps? or something along the lines of nature, wind, storms, seasons etc..?

    what a lovely relaxing piece of music that you put with your video.

  2. Thanks for taking a guess Sonya! You are close when you mentioned the music...I'm glad you liked it - my clever husband wrote it in collaboration with another musician Sallie Campbell.

    So...I'll give you credit for one - it's to spend more time listening to my favourite music.

    There are two more, and I'll give you a hint...the video subject matter (i.e. the clouds) is more the point, symbolically and literally. It's not about an art project at all.

  3. Every cloud has a silver lining; you'll look at clouds from both sides now; blowing away the clouds - clearing your mind, your slate? As you can see I'm stumped Amanda, unless you're going to embroider clouds, or take up nature videoing. Nice music.

  4. hhmm, maybe your new year's resolution is to take time to simply watch the clouds drift by, take time out for you and allow yourself to daydream? or, I agree with what carol said, that every cloud has a silver lining?

    Your husband is very talented indeed, it's a gorgeous piece of music.

  5. Hi Carol and Sonya - thank-you for taking the time to think about it and to "play" with me! You are both basically there - I just worded it a little differently....

    1. to spend more time just watching the clouds drift by;
    2. to allow the "storms" to float by me, and
    3. to spend more time listening to my favourite music.

    Well done!
