As the year draws to a close, I am normally cast into deep reflection. But this year is different. This year I am focused on the road ahead...I am looking forward rather than behind me. I can feel something shifting...a change in my consciousness and I am eager to pursue it. To see where it is going to lead me. I can feel myself letting go of ideas, of notions, of stuff that I no longer want cluttering up the way I live my life....I've been holding onto these things for years but now feel ready to just open my tightly clenched fist and let the wind carry them away.
I feel ready to walk down the road ahead. To walk on this new road with a genuine heart, with a sure foot and...always...with Sophie by my side.
Sophie and I are heading up north, to the cottage, for a few days. I am hoping to get some great winter shots with my new camera. I want to spend some time thinking about this new road and the stops I would like to make along the way this year. I want to finish letting go. I want to be quiet for a few days as the holidays come to an end. And most of all, I want to take long walks in the snow with my dog and sit with her on the deck, silently watching the sun come up over the lake.
I will write more about my thoughts on the road ahead, and about our days up north, when we get back on the weekend. I won't say Happy New Year....but I will say cherish your memories from 2008, let go of what you need to and I hope you celebrate new beginnings.....
