New Year, new beginnings...

Happy New Year! 

It's only a few days into 2014 and it already seems to be a busy year. I have a lot of... projects... that are in various stages of development. Opportunities and new beginnings. Transitions. Interactions. 

There's a lot going on with me; mentally, emotionally, physically. I'm figuring out where I want to be. I'm not yet one hundred percent sure where that is and I'm okay with that. At this time it's all about enjoying the process. Connecting with my inner self and finding guidance where I can.

A few days ago my brother and I found some old books that my mom used as journals. It is strange to be reading them and yes, I'm reading them. I think that it is from her that I have this need to write to express myself. I think that part of blogging, where the world can see, is to avoid the strangeness that is finding hidden books after death - revealing words, thoughts and emotions of times and places past. Many times we would talk about how I would write her biography but we never really started compiling notes or memories. Perhaps part of this lesson is to do what needs to be done in the present because there may never be a future time when it can come into being. It is interesting reading her thoughts of the everyday mundane things and of her own quest for Self. Purpose? Whatever it is that we all search for whether we acknowledge it or not. 

Today I started a project 52 - one photo a week for the rest of the year. I'm fairly sure I can stick to it. My photo is of a tea set for one that I had bought for my mom to match with a bag that my brother had bought for her. Sometimes the best way to start the day is with a cup of tea. Sometimes the best way to start a year is to take a moment for quiet introspection in the midst of busy days.

Wishing you all that you dream of for 2014!

peace,
