Thursday Thinking and Inking - Promises


All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, December 31, 2009


Today is New Year’s Eve. Tomorrow, we will greet a brand-new year (and a new decade), as 2010 opens. Many folks will make New Year’s resolutions, promising to begin new healthy or positive practices, end addictions and harmful habits or make personal improvements of any kind.

Are you making any New Year’s resolutions this year?
Will you stay up until midnight to welcome the New Year?


Happy New Year!

On this New Year’s Eve, we feature this quotation for Thursday Thinking and Inking at Meme Express.

“But I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep,
and miles to go before I sleep.
Robert Frost



Each Thursday, we will feature a quotation as inspiration for that day’s prompt.

The Meme Express for today is simple:
