There's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.
After months (a year, maybe a little more?) of creative.....fallowness, the crack has (finally) appeared. I have ignored the 'do it anyway' mantra in favour of busy-ness and general dust gathering. But I see the crack and it's time to make the most of the light.
Yes to light.
Now it's up to me.
Happy Friday. :)

This post started out as a different post completely. I started last year with the word balance as my word for the year. And, to be blunt, I made a complete hash of it. I won't go in to the hows and whys here but it feels very much like a fail.
My word for this year started out as...balance. I felt that as I hadn't achieved it and it was still very much needed, I had to have a redo. But then I started reading other people's post about their word for the year. Posts filled with expectation, joy, anticipation. And all I felt was flat with a slight sense of dread - like I was resitting an exam I still hadn't studied for.
So I have abandoned balance and shifted perspective a little. And the word that has found me is light. An intention to seek light; to feel light; to share light; to lighten the load with a hope that it will lead me to where I want to be. Perhaps in a less prescriptive way.
So I'm starting 2016 in a slightly wounded state but, I think, with cause for cautious optimism.
Going gently and mindfully in these first few days and weeks. With one eye always towards the light.
How about you?

It's starting quietly. Even the mundanity of broken dishwashers and epic Amazon deliveries hasn't thrown me off kilter. Yet. Early days.
My wish this advent is that I remember what it's really all about. Not consumer mania or picture perfect home baking and decorations or over eating or rushing around like a loon......
Just the quiet anticipation of something truly special.

It's been a challenging few months, especially creatively. Sometimes things need to go a little askew so you can recharge, reassess and change things up a bit. And that's where I'm at now. But it's amazing what a change of scene can do - what seemed so daunting and depressing now feels positive, a new challenge to embrace and an excitement to see where it goes.
