January 2011 Newsletter 4.2 Passion

Jan 11 4.2 Passion

I am so excited about the new website and soon the posting of the newsletter will be much better!!!!

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy and are inspired by the subject for Passion and by the amazing and beautiful art of my friend Bonnie!

Please keep her in your prayers and thoughts as she has had some grief, and some personal medical issues, over the Christmas holidays.

I hope you have a lovely day!

A Whole New Year!

Starting a new year

is always a good thing

a whole new fresh start

to improve on last year…

The possibilities are



change and growth

and ideas –

life changing



A whole new year to make choices,

better choices,

choosing and living with more






choosing all good things

in the face of whatever comes our way –

knowing there will be both  sides –

great joy and great sadness –

striving to love each moment of time

as I wait for it to unfold


waiting to be revealed

in this space

we will bookmark as

The Start: First Newsletter of 2011!

January 11 4.1 Home

Here we are on January 1 of a brand new year! I am so excited about the direction I am heading, I have finally arrived ‘home’ after a very long and difficult journey, and now I am at the beginning of lots of new and exciting opportunities. Wow, is it ever good!

As I start this year there are some things that are difficult and there is a bittersweetness surrounding me right now, but I know the only way to live life is to face, and feel, it all.

So, I am mailing the check for the website out today! I should have it up and running in the next few weeks, until then I will post the newsletter links here. 

This year I will be posting one newsletter a week to try it. That more than doubles my current issues, so it will be interesting to see if I can reach my goal and if anyone will want to read a new one every week!

So, welcome to 2011!

May it be a year of great love, peace, joy and all the good things in life for all of us!

Found this on Freshly Pressed! Beautiful!

Christmas, 2010

Can I make a present for you?

A trill on the piano
A dip on the dance floor
A swirl of crimson on an ochre tide

Perhaps some stars
Strung together like ripe
cranberries; memories of popcorn
on a homespun Saturday night

Can I make you a present?
Anise and curry
An hour of dreams
A moment of new fallen snow

This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle: we are given one life and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind, or whether to act, and in acting, to live. – Omar Bradley
