It’s here. The new year. What are your New Year’s resolutions? I’ve been thinking long and hard of what I wish to accomplish in the new year. I’m still trying to find time to take yoga lessons. I’d also like to plant a vegetable garden this year. I think those two are enough! I don’t think I want to get too ambitious with my New Year’s resolutions.

Something different to start the new year

Here’s an interesting way to start off the new year. A traditional Japanese tea ceremony, “The Embodiment of Spirit, Beauty, and Ritual” will be held 3-6 p.m. Jan. 18 at the SCV Senior Center, 22900 Market St., Newhall. This free event is an experience of historical background, narration and authentic presentation and will be performed by Shuko Nielsen. Info: Robin Clough 661-259-9444 ext. 110,
