if you don’t plant the seed,

you’ll have no crop to harvest”

My word for 2016 is connection.

As a new year begins new ideas begin to form. I’m resurrecting the blog and making new connections. New friendships, connecting with like minded souls and submitting work to publications is my goal for the year ahead.

Instagram continues to be my favourite form of social networking, I’ve made some great connections there. I hope to continue with a quote a day.

 

 

May the stars carry your sadness away,

May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,

May hope forever wipe away your tears,

And, above all, may silence make you strong.

Chief Dan George

What I’m listening to  Lisa Gerrard – Now we are Free (from the film Gladiator)

The year is nearly over. In general it has been a good year. My two children have shaken off their wings and flown, one to travel and one to succeed in his chosen field.I think there will be challenges ahead but we will be there on the sidelines cheering them on. As for us well, it’s a matter of choosing the next step along the yellow brick road. I have a few ideas in the pipeline, who knows whether I will succeed , but I won’t know until I try. Mark continues to be my rock and I think we will plan some short adventures, health and weather permitting.

Some Thoughts at the End of the Year

Writing

As the year draws to a close I’m gathering some ideas ready for 2015. Once again I am thinking of a word that will help and guide me through my 60th year.  As usual I find this so difficult mainly because I need more than one !!
