It's almost January, and still no snow.  Frosty mornings, crystal covered leaves, and a few drifting snowflakes.  Not much color to be found and some cold, damp days.  I am dreaming of snow angels, and beautiful white covered pine trees standing alert in the woods.  Crispy nights with star-studded skies, standing around a campfire drinking hot chocolate.  Yes, that's what I hope for.  Snowmen, children's laughter as they fly effortlessly down a hill on a piece of plastic, and the meditative swoosh of my skis as they glide through quiet woods that look like something out of a fairytale book.  The sound of falling snow.  One of my very favorite things.

As 2011 comes to a close, as with most years, I spend time being quiet, reflecting on the year, thinking about my vision for 2012.  I have some exciting things I will share with you as they unfold.  2011 was a slow start for some of my creative adventures, but movement nonetheless.  One foot in front of the other, one step at a time.

My wish for 2012 -  to share my love of all things creative, to ignite a curious and courageous fire in all of those individuals whose paths I cross, and to share my love and passion for life with random acts of kindness (more to be revealed :)  Happy New Year!!

This morning I woke to magic.  A full moon,  dark tree silhouettes that look like bodies frozen in dance formation against the deep, blue sky, dappled with hundreds of glimmering stars; crystals, glitter and sparkle everywhere!   

The quiet of the morning.  My favorite time of day.  The stillness of things begs for quiet reflection. And then....  watching the light peak over the horizon and everything comes to life.
