I’ve always enjoyed writing. I’m not sure what it is about putting my words to paper…or electronic script in this case. I seem to feel thoughtful and insightful when I write. As if I am a person of deep ideas and dreams. There’s something about finding the exact words, the perfect description and the right feelings to express that gets me really excited about writing. I would like to do it more often, and honestly, I know I could find the time everyday. I just need to manage my personal time better and sit to write, even if only for 10 minutes! Really, what is 10 minutes? I’d like to pose this challenge to myself. Writing either in the morning or in the evening. Plus, having a new macbook to work on makes this even more fun! My 10 minute goal…here I come! 3 years ago

The quite of the morning after New Year’s Eve is a strange one. It is partly laden with chilled memories of unfulfilled resolutions of the past year, while the blanketed earth and silence of morning remind that this is a fresh start. The crystalline moments fill the air. At first ever so slowly and then with more and more presence, like all of the resolutions that we plan, pine and prepare for. Like individual ideals that we hope to uphold. They fill our world, maybe our week, and then melt away, leaving patches on which we slip and slide and sometimes fall, reminding us that we are just human. In this moment I can’t help but want to be better, to myself, others and our world. I’m aware that I just might slip on my way and tip-toe back into the warmth of habit, but this is the time to venture. The new year is a natural reset button. A milestone day and moment that make us reflect on what it is that we want, and want to work for. Yes, these delicate bits of resolution might not make it, melting before they stick to the ground, but I know that I’d take a white New Year’s morning to a green one any day. I’ll take the slipping and the sliding, because that is what it’s all about. Wishing everyone a white new year. May you achieve all that you set out to do in 2010! 3 years ago
