today i am grateful for


mornings, first days of the month, new years day, even mondays...if it's officially the start of something, i love it.  the sense of the clean slate, of the do-over, of pure possibility is one of the most exhilarating feelings i experience.  the power to begin again polishes the roughness of loss.  there is nothing like the energy of new.

for the past month, i've been somewhat obsessed with the word 'begin'.  i went to squam thinking i would make a piece of art with the word in it.  while there, the spectacular sunrises deepened my awareness and connection to the art of beginning.

in my last workshop, i randomly picked this blessing and it was read to me by the lovely jen lee:

"just when it feels like everything is over, a new beginning is about to be born."
