Resolution.

There's really only one resolution - to write more. It's been a long time and I never meant it to be. I had hoped to fill these pages with wander, because there is so much of it. I hope to do so very soon, but for now, dear friends, if you are still there, I want you to know that I have an incredible life and all these months that passed were filled with adventure and happiness more than anything else. 

I have stories to tell, and I will. I paved along lonesome roads and went to the ends of the earth. I watched the sun rise and the stars fill the sky. I climbed the mountains that spit fire and felt the snow on my eyelashes. I encountered the wolves and survived. I killed lots and lots of bees (even though I didn't want to - yes that's some story!). I felt a thousand eyes on me, and learned that it's really strange being in the spotlight. I gave into the melodies of summer evenings and found romance on Sunday morning. I held clouds in my arms and soaked in the autumn rain. I photographed lakes of  gold and made love in the woods. 

I've had some of the kindest moments and experiences this past winter and spring and they really impacted me in ways I didn't foresee. There is always room for change and growth. We forget that sometimes. I did change and grow. 

Thinking of all of you and how grateful I am that you are here. Happy New Year! 

And yes, the resolution. I am not much for them, but I'll keep this one.

  1. I am doing the #365DaysOfWriting challenge on Medium - the goal is to write at least one post a day. So far, I am on Day 240 but I don't like what I write there...Somehow, It feels more like writing for writing's sake...I prefer the posts I write on my blogspace here at stardustsprinkles.blogspot.in

    I hope you do write more this year and I get to visit your space more often! Wish you a Happy 2017!!

    1. I feel the same way. You just can't force writing on you. The moment it becomes a chore, its the same moment, the muse leaves. I hope you are able to write however, and whenever you want.
