“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives...not looking for flaws, but for potential.”
---- Ellen Goodman
I'm always a sucker for a fresh start.
A blank journal. A new calendar. A freshly turned garden. Casting on.
Especially after a rough go of things.
And 2016 was certainly that.
I spent the day yesterday drawing up a list (as Ellen Goodman so artfully says) of work to be done, cracks to be patched . . . and potential. So much potential.
I have no illusions that turning the calendar to a new year will bring any magic. But it does provide a sense of beginning again. A summing up, so to speak. An opportunity to assess and reflect and start anew.
So. Welcome 2017.
Let's do what we can . . . to make you a good one!
