The eventful solstice/full moon/eclipse is behind us as well as the Christmas and New Year gatherings, expectations and reflections. As I sit down to reconnect with my blog and write this, the first week of January is coming to an end, and snow is falling and gently covering the trees and ground with fresh and beautiful white.
Like the new white, untouched snow, the new year seems fresh and yet ripe with both potential and uncertainty and the unknown. For me, this new year is not one of joyful resolutions and brightly optimistic plans. Instead it feels positive but serious...mysterious. This is a time of deepening and reflecting on myself, my heart, on my relationships and on my path as I continually create the life I lead and desire to lead. This is what I'll call my striving of being and becoming. The striving of appreciating and being present in the moments that are my life and the striving of continually and consciously making choices that create a fulfilling, positive, creative and authentic life.
I missed writing and sharing over the last few weeks as this blog has become a pleasurable way to personally and publicly journal using photos, thoughts, ideas, art work, garden work and music. Very soon there will be more posts that are already in the works showing recent art work that I created in the time I wasn't posting, trees, thoughts on study & the creative process.... stay posted. For now, here are some pictures I want to share. They were taken between my last post and now. Then, very soon, in a couple days, something fresh and so 2011!
