I am sitting in my warm house watching snow, and a new sleeping puppy. The sky is grey, the earth brown and the branches black against my window.
2013 was challenging for me. Perhaps because I am in the very middle of my life and that crisis rumor is real, perhaps because teenagedom has transformed my darlings into temporarily odd creatures, part family issues, fires, flood and some professional challenges too. My hope is that 2104 is easier because I get more skilled at making all the pieces and parts of this colorful life fit together.
This entry into the new year is exciting to me, a portal of possibilities. What I have on my calendar is a trip to Australia, New Zealand, Phoenix, Virginia and Taos, maybe more. What I have in my head is a whole lot of art, which I hope finds its way to fruition.
May your New Year be full of possibilities that we recognize and seize, ideas we leap on with enthusiasm, books that we cannot put down and flavors that make us pause in bliss. May our journals and lives be full of graciousness, blessings and appreciation. May we all find simplicity and authenticity, help and true friendship.
Make it merry, make it mellow. The best to all of you!
