The close of a year encourages reflection. We consider the events of the past year with a critical eye: what was good, what not so good? What was successful, what not so successful? Are we where we thought we’d be? If so, how did we get here? If not, what got us off track?
It’s good to ask these questions from time to time. If nothing else, such an exercise helps us crystalize the amorphous issues that clamor for our attention. New Year’s Resolutions help us prioritize.
Resolve to play more.
Everyone needs to come up with their own New Year’s Resolutions. For some, losing weight sits at the top of the list. For others, #1 is spending more time with family, or finding a different job, or giving up caffeine.
We can’t say what’s important for other people, but we firmly believe that somewhere on the list should be this simple statement: play more.
The Finger Lakes Region is a wonderful playground for adults. It is dappled with deep gorges, roaring waterfalls, and clear lakes. It has miles of wooded trails to explore, and is home to the only national forest in New York State. There are more wineries here than you can count on your fingers and toes.
Cultural activities abound in the Finger Lakes Region, as well. Nearby Ithaca is home to excellent restaurants, shops, and theaters. Cornell University and Ithaca College bring world class dance, music, and film to the area, as well as fascinating scholars. Art inspires art, and there are outstanding fine art galleries and museums in the area as well.
Resolve to play more in 2012. Travel to the Finger Lakes Region with good friends or family, because more people sometimes means more fun. Our Finger Lakes Vacation Rental, Clarks Cottage on Hidden Pond, comfortably sleeps up to ten people. It is spacious, elegant, and peacefully situated on more than 6 acres.
Close to the cultural activities of Ithaca and Cornell, our Finger Lakes Vacation Home is also close to parks, Cayuga and Seneca Lakes, and dozens of Finger Lakes Wineries. Everything that you need for a fun vacation is here.
Make 2012 the year you put “vacation” on the top of your New Year’s Resolutions, and start planing a getaway to our Finger Lakes Vacation Rental.
Happy New Year.
