A New Year: New Possibilities

Today is the first day of the modern calendar year of 2010.   Happy New Year!

I am back in Central New York now and on this snowy, but mild day, I spent my first day of 2010 reading, moving slowly from one room to the next, knitting a little.  I also baked banana bread, played with my dog, and read some more.  I will end my day reading until my eyes grow too weary to properly see the words.  This was a good day.  I created every moment and savored the passing of time like it was delicious and sacred.

I am facing a new year.  A year of possibilities spreads out before me.  I have no idea what is ahead of me.  The past is still fresh, but it will not be a weight dragging me down, instead it will support and guide me, while I build each day.  And within each day I build, a dose of creativity will be an essential ingredient. Sometimes creativity is in NOT making something.  Sometimes creativity is in how daily life is constructed.  My focus this year will be on strengthening this skill. Art and life are becoming one.

My art is changing.  This change is altering my life.  New possibilities are unfolding.  This year will be about nurturing and allowing this change to take place.  In this year, I will be sharing my reflections on my time at OAC, my discoveries, and my insights.  There will be words, drawings, paintings and other surprises.

Thanks for sharing the journey with me.

Fine writing, fine art. I'm glad I stumbled in here, out of the cold.
