The door of the past was ajar—
His robe like a shroud wrapped around him,
The Old Year vanished afar.
And as morn with her soft rosy fingers
Flung open the gates of the East,
The New Year looked out from its chambers
With a smile and a blessing of peace."
enjoying a peaceful & quiet
~ new years day ~
this new year i will find more peace ~
more joy to fill my heart & soul.
i will be softer, kinder...
and i will surround myself with the things i love most.
you will notice changes in me...
changes that have been coming for a while now ~
all the while embracing old ideas with new-found spirit and joy!
done with too much,
i want just enough.
finished with too big,
i ache for just right.
comfort, clarity and mindfullness are my keywords now.
each month I will continue to work on clearing out and cleaning up ~
keeping things more organized and simple
so that i may have more time to enjoy and create...
the old farmhouse smells like baking cornbread...
that will be eaten for tonight's supper with pork, black eyed peas & collard greens
as we have in many years past to bring us good luck ~
wishing you all a new year filled with quiet peace
a warm home filled with love
and simple creativity to keep your hands & mind busy.
