The Crack

Light search

There's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.  
Leonard Cohen

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. :)

My Word

Cafe Dreams

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?
