I find that all around me bloggers have fully embraced the new year. They seem plunge in head first, ready to be immersed in the new. Not me. I find that I let go slowly. That it takes me a few weeks to uncurl my fingers and let go. I find that my internal calendar doesn't reset to a new year until three or four weeks in. I guess I have to enter it slowly, like a child at the edge of a cold sea.
Lately I find myself thinking of post ideas that are all rearview-focused. Then I think that I should be forward facing. But, no. No. It's fine that I want, even need, to savor 2009 before fully facing 2010. And, that's exactly what I shall do. This is my own heart's space, after all.
So. For the next week or so, you will find me here with a savoring of 2009. And after that, I'll be ready to let go and more fully embrace 2010.
I don't know if you have noticed, but I have been trying to use my own photographs more in this space. I miss "featuring" so many wonderful images. But, I have been enjoying the challenge of creating my own images to match my thoughts.
