How New Year's Resolutions Become Realities

Beach in the Dominican RepublicA few years ago, I ushered in the New Year with bare feet and new friends, just beyond the border of plush chaise lounges that extend Cabarete’s beach bars toward the open sea. Fireworks shot into the sky, and our international crew of traveling surfers gazed upward, into bright stars and dreams for the New Year.
