I had surgery last week, and have subsequently been living inside transformation. This has happened to me before: Whenever my body has been cut or broken open I have been overwhelmed with unfelt emotions and forgotten feelings. With days alone and empty of obligations, I am exploring and renewing, and becoming…..Me.
“To remember who you are, you need to forget who they told you to be.”

While I love winter, for some reason I am dreaming of kayaking in the marsh. I am hungry for the sounds of birds as they fly overhead. I want to feel the water’s current pull me along. And I want to see the sun’s reflection build a world upon the water. What bliss, what perfection, alone with my thoughts.

A Year to Clear, Minimalist, Simplfy. I am called to release what no longer serves me, and boy oh boy, am I letting go of stuff. Coffee mugs we never use, clothes I never wear, and books I don’t need to keep. And now the bookcases provide me with a creative outlet!

Snow is lovely. Silent and soft and I so wish we had gotten more of it overnight. It’s still snowing so maybe we will!

This. This play of light and shadow. Art and writing are my focus this week and this was my greeting when I opened the door yesterday to let the pups out. She inspires me every day of my life, and this gift was perfect.

Waking in the morning to a soft white world, I hear the plow blade scrape its way down my country road. Proverbial, not unexpected, and joyously received, the first blizzard of the season captures my heart. May there be many more!

The big day is upon us and rightly, the kids are showing up soon! I have decorated, knit gifts, wrapped presents and entertained myself with holiday concerts, plays and lightshows. I am ready! I’m ready for the best day of the year with all the ups and downs that come with it. I’m ready for peace, and that special family time we’ve planned. I’m ready for the joy and the lull after gift opening when everyone sits around playing with their gifts. I’m ready for our annual seafood Christmas Eve supper and the candlelight service at the UU church. I am so ready!!!

As the wheel of the year turns, the light will be returning soon. Here in NH we are enticing it early with our own light, one in each window. Welcoming, guiding, a message to the world that peace lies within.

Upon the Christmas hubbub, the first snow of the season brought calm and peace as I expected. Sitting down to read and let go of the need to accomplish, I gathered myself back to my center….to breathe. The dogs played, the cat slept, and I wrote.

When I am here I cannot resist going down to the beach early to see the dawning, to be inside it as it happens. The ocean transforms herself daily, hourly, and as the sun appears, I am transfixed by the light.
