New Year Intentions

Taking a cue from Ruth over at Two Writing Teachers, I've decided to do intentions rather than resolution. For some reason intentions seems much more do-able and if I don't met them all, I don't think I'll feel so much that I failed. So here are my intentions for 2010:Another "page" that I'm borrowing from Two Writing Teachers is the idea of One Little Word.
My word for 2010 is "explore"

–verb (used with object)
1. to traverse or range over (a region, area, etc.) for the purpose of discovery: to explore the island.
2. to look into closely; scrutinize; examine: Let us explore the possibilities for improvement.
3. Surgery. to investigate into, esp. mechanically, as with a probe.
4. Obsolete. to search for; search out.
–verb (used without object)
5. to engage in exploration.

1575–85; < class="ital-inline">explōrāre
to search out, examine, equiv. to ex- ex- 1 + plōrāre to cry out, prob. orig. with reference to hunting cries

I'm looking forward to what this year will bring.
