Yesterday, I read in the Toronto Star about a couple that resolved last year to make the year a year of “firsts”. They resolved to learn, make or experience 365 new things in 365 days. They blogged about their progress in knocking items off of their bucket list at http://www.365thingsin365days.com/

Inspired by their story, yesterday I went indoor rock climbing with my two teenaged sons at True North Climbing at Downsview Park. We had a blast, and were very proud of our achievements. We tried a new adventure that took us out of our comfort zone. We had a great time, got a little exercise, and bonded over what is a combination of a personal challenge, and a trust exercise. (Sort of like that exercise where you fall backwards, hoping to be caught by the group.    Only in this case, the fall is from 10 metres, with your young son at the bottom, controlling (or not) your fall.)

In our Hull and Hull blogs this year, we hope to do something like the couple reported on in the Star did. We want to expose our readers (and ourselves) to new things every day: new lessons to learn, new ways of looking at old issues, new cases, new approaches to difficult estates and trusts issues.

We value you feedback. Please comment on what you read, or what you would like to read. 

Please stay tuned. It is going to be a great year.

Until tomorrow,

Paul Trudelle
