“If you asked me for my New Year’s resolution, it would be to find out who I am.” Cyril Cusack | actor A new year lies before us, and all things seem possible! I invite you to make a new kind of resolution this year – one that challenges you to explore your inner spirit and maybe even puts a new spin on who you are. What an amazing gift to give ourselves . . . to spend a year exploring who we are – what we love. And what a doable resolution – one that can be done in small ways throughout the year. Explore the dancer, the artist, the musician in your heart; get fit, get organized, get on track financially; learn to write, to cook, to sew, to speak a new language – whether it be Italian or Twitter! Or learn to speak without language through a photography or sign language class. We can help you make 2014 a year filled with self-exploration, self-fulfillment, and maybe even a little adventure! Make some time in 2014 to explore your spirit! Live with passion – Learn for Life! Tina Sieker | associate dean, Continuing Education
