looking back, looking up, looking in

January 3, 2012

I’ve tried a lot of new things over the last several months.

I gazed at unfamiliar stars.

I listened to strange and moving music.

I visited old places I had nearly forgotten.

I left previousness behind — in a wake of love — and began something new.

Today, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude.  In this country, in this century, possibilities gather around me like flowers.  I get to pick where I go, and what I do, and when, and with whom.  I couldn’t be more fortunate.

Today, my earnest prayer: Please, don’t let me take this freedom for granted.

Happy 2012, y’all.  I look so forward to another year with you.  Here’s to really believing that the best is yet to come, and thanks — always — for showing up.

*Stay tuned for my artful rendering of a pear, as promised.
