It seems appropriate to be re-starting this blog on the Solstice. I’ve had this project at the back of my mind for many months now (the better part of a year actually) but just hadn’t set aside the space and time to make it happen. There were always other things that were, legitimately, more pressing and urgent on my to-do list. That doesn’t change the fact that I’ve really missed this space though. Missed having somewhere to chronicle my thoughts, share ideas and projects, and interact with like-minded folks. The common mainstays of social media are holding less and less appeal for me as time goes on and I find myself more frustrated with them than anything.
Today I hung new sets of prayer flags on the back deck and then did a yoga mala (108 sun salutations) with a dear friend. The days between the Solstice and the New Year are some of my favorites as they are full of dreaming and planning. I’m sure the next week or so will be filled with lots of reflecting on the past year as well as figuring out how to build off of this foundation for the next turn of the wheel.
Here’s to a fresh start as we come out of the dark and speed like arrows towards spring.
