Thank you for being a part of my life, for reading, commenting, lurking, and for encouraging my daily musings. You are a valuable part of my life, my creative life, which means I can't imagine my world without this blog. We will continue on in 2011 together.
The only list I'm making this year is a grocery list. (Who wants to go to the store twice?) Since my big life event I haven't been unable to attain many of my knitting goals. Intentions and deadlines have rarely been met, whether knitting or life oriented. This I have learned, finishing a project happens in its own time. I can only surmise it is because my focus has changed (or perhaps, I have no focus). New additions to my life (such as gardens and chickens) have opened new doors and all this learning can be overwhelming. Who knew a year ago that I'd love caring for chickens, or enjoy gardening, both planning and planting. I'm also enjoying new flavors and new recipe ideas, which might have something to do with the garden. Life has made a sharp turn and it feels right.
Simplifying, organizing, and minimizing will remain a large part of my focus for 2011. Hopefully I can keep this focus, but after the big clean out of my junque room, it feels good to be in the space, to sit and read, spin or knit, or to just be. Simplifying will move into other rooms and aspects of my life. This too shall become part of the process of life...a slow change, a simmering idea, and new focus.
This has turned into a bit of a ramble, but it's as close as I'll come to creating intentions or resolutions. If I have any intention it's to enjoy the moment, give more to my friends and family, and to be the best person I can be.
Dear friends, thank you for being a part of my life and may 2011 be as good as it can be.
