Oh Brave New World: January 2, 2016
January 2, 1931
This is the turn of the tide. The days are lengthening. Today was fine from start to finish – the first one we have had, I think, since we came. And for the first time I walked my Northease walk & saw the moon rise at 3, pale, very thin, in a pure blue sky above misty flattened fields, as if it were early on a June morning.
Here are my resolutions for the next 3 months; the next lap of the year.
First, to have none. Not to be tied.
Second, to be free & kindly with myself, not goading it to parties: to sit rather privately reading in the studio.
To make a good job on The Waves.
To care nothing for making money. . . .
As for clothes, I think to buy good ones.
This morning Sandles brought & she is now stood in her alcove. ,
