Starting Fresh - 100 Reasons I Love Peekskill - Post 63

Magician and Acupuncturist Margaret Steele blogs about living and working in Downtown Peekskill.

Starting Fresh. It's January 2nd, 2013. No turning back -the New Year is here. Over the last couple of months, there was so much I Love Peekskill stuff to blog about that I just never got to.  I should be at Post 75 by now - at least. But that very statement - that should that comes from nothing but an arbitrary, self-imposed goal that nobody cares about from me - is exactly what I'm resolving to let go of this year. Not the actual goal, but the should've judgement if I don't manage to get to it when it doesn't matter if I don't.

So, in brief, here are just a couple of the things I'd planned to write about that are now soooo 2012:

The Downtown Art Crawl - Co-sponsored by the Peekskll BID and HVCCA, there was a fantastic exhibition of contemporary art by local artists on display in storefronts throughout downtown Peekskill all of last month. On December 8th there was a guided tour - the Art Crawl - hosted by Anna Adler of HVCCA, which attracted a BIG crowd and ended up with the wackiest, most wonderful party. It was so fabulous. So bloggable, but I lost and found the flyer for it at least 5 times and never had it on hand when I had time to write. (Of course I have it here right now...)

Holiday Fun - OK. There was a lot of partying going on in Peekskill. But as the decorations start to come down the window of anyone being interested has passed. 

Cablevision Training - Betcha didn't know I'm now a trained TV producer. Yep - I did the FREE public access TV production training at the Cablevision studio which is conveniently located one block from my loft. I can now apply to have my own cable access TV show. Stay tuned.

Love vs. Like - After over two years here, the bloom is off the rose. I still LOVE Peekskill, but I don't always like absolutely everything. I particularly didn't like that so many City employees lost their jobs just as the holidays got underway. (I just may be able to expand this topic into 2013....) 

All the rest - I just looked at a blog topics list I made a couple of months ago, and I can't remember half of the things they're referring to. The ones I do remember are fond memories of lovely times in Peekskill that don't rate a backwards in-depth recounting but do add up to yet another year of loving being here.

So I'm starting the new year fresh, making new memories, which I resolve to keep up with sharing (but will let go of gracefully - ahhhh - if I don't)

Happy New Year!
