I’ve got a pile of old journals from the past year sitting next to me and a notebook in my lap to make notes on the past years themes, its ups, its downs and its in betweens.
I was motivated to this activity when I realized I couldn’t readily answer the questions in the 2012 reflections section of my recently purchased and printed 2013 Create your Incredible Year work book. It felt like it had been a long year and I needed to revisit it to get clarity. I’m really grateful I was moved to do so.
The 2013 Create your Incredible Year Notebook by Leonie Dawson had come across my radar several different times from several different places and then an extra several times from one place (thanks Arwin!). I finally decided I’d give it a go. New things are a foot for the coming year and maybe this will help me be more mindful in my approach to it.
In the mean time I take these last days before Solstice to read my old words – laugh, tear up, sigh and wonder why I didn’t write more poetry, because the ones I did write made me smile.
I’ll leave you with one of those poems written on January 29th of 2012.

ears pointed towards the kitchen
scraping of food from a can
one, two, three, four
tails swishing on linoleum
