Welcome. At the last day of last year, I asked you what you are looking forward to in 2022. Since then, I have thought of Anne Shirley’s upbeat request in “Anne … the house of the green gables”: “Marilla, isn’t it nice to to think that tomorrow is a new day without errors for the moment? When I read Anne’s books as a child, I found this simple idea heartwarming, each new day laid out like a blank sheet of loose-leaf paper, all in potential.

As an adult who’s learned to worry, I rarely think of the days ahead as void of content. Yet I return to a lingering hope that if the year we embark on is certain to contain ‘mistakes’, perhaps there will be fewer of them than the last two, and our collective and individual experience will. to correct or recover from them more easily.

Here’s what some At Home and Away readers are looking forward to this year (answers edited for length and clarity):

  • “I can’t wait to participate in my first international basketball tournament, the FIMBA European Maxibasketball Championship in Malaga, Spain, at the age of 71! I have been invited to play for the USA team and I am truly honored to have this special opportunity to play against the best 70-75 year olds in the world! And to think I almost gave up hooping when my old high school canvas Converse sneakers wore out in 1972! —Rus Rusbosin, Venice, Florida.

  • “Instead of making a big resolution, this year I’ll take it one month at a time. January will be 31 days of yoga, February will be writing every day, March will be vegan before 6 p.m. So much for health and baby steps in 2022. ”—Jenny Fan Raj, San Francisco

  • “I can’t wait to retire after 33 years of teaching in a public school, Grades 2 to 12. I plan to buy a basketball hoop and play; read the final biography of each American First Lady (one per month); and pursue hobbies I didn’t have time for, such as gluing, cutting, sewing, bowling, kayaking, and archery. I think I can do most of these even if Covid continues (maybe not bowling). —Leslie McLean, Sonoma, CA

  • “In 2022, I plan to read a chapter before sleeping every night.” —Wilson Martinez, Charlotte, North Carolina

  • “My only goal for the first quarter of 2022 is to clean our basement before my daughter’s third birthday in April. We want to get him some drums, so hopefully make some room for him to have a baby studio. She has spent all of her time since the age of 11 months cloistered at home with only her parents and a disgruntled cat. If she can’t get the shot in the first half of 2022, I want her to feel in control and free in another way. Hope ripping it up on drums and making music can be that for her. —Sara Greene, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

  • “As a fully vaccinated retiree who loves to travel, I look forward to the beautiful lavender fields of southern France in early July 2022. This is a tour I booked two years ago for the summer of 2021. , foolishly believing the pandemic to be conducive to international travel at this point. In my dreams, I see the shades of purple and I breathe deeply, breathing in the scent of lavender. So be it. -Beverly D. Kerr, Morgantown, W.Va.
