Ahhhhh! The NEW YEAR!! yay and yay! I find the newness ( even though it's merely a calendar change) to be utterly delightful. It's an opportunity..a time to indulge your spirit and see where she wants to go....! Are you one to grow and embrace this chance to dig deep inside...? Is it a guilty pleasure..or a delicious opera that dances inside your soul....? Will you go where your heart is.....which could really be anywhere....into your kitchen if you please for a cup of earl grey..or onto India where you'll ride on gem-encrusted painted elephants..both are good...maybe a bit of both IS just what you want? I get all nesty this time of year after the tree comes down..and all the greens are cleaned up....what now??? ... is always my thought..and then it begins...the dance around the house with my arms full of things that just need to be moved about. Such is life...it is not stagnant!
Do you start planning your spring garden...flipping through the seed mags, looking at the chickens you may have been thinking about for your backyard...some hydrangeas for the side of the house...or in my case a few wee olive trees to plant out in the meadow!
Is the charm of the New Year simply irresistible to you? Do you make plans to keep ...? Are you a list maker of all the things you want to do..to dream...to conquer.....! Will you take the chance to try something new...meet someone new...put yourself out there in a new way ( scary as that can really be...!) Will you....?
Do you believe that " life changes" come in many flavors ..and that perspective is not " one size fits all"? ...well do you??
I do. I believe you can find your poetic wanderlust at any age, anytime any place..and over and over if you so dare! Do you?
Wishing you the magic and sweetness that you all so deserve...no matter where you are in your life...embrace it....run with it....life is true movable feast.....just waiting for YOU!!!
Cheers, Love and Goodness!
