Are You Open To New Possibilities?

The start of a new year refreshes my muse. Getting past the solstice and putting away holiday decorations makes me look forward to the twelve new months. While some folks set goals, I have a few, the biggest challenge is to slow down and remain in the now. Luckily Mother Nature likes to send me artwork on a regular basis.

Christmas Eve 2011 sunrise from my backyard.

I took this photo on Christmas Eve morning in my backyard, in my jammies. A former photojournalist, I always have my cameras with me or within reach. For some reason I woke up early and decided to just get up; rare, since staying in a comfy warm bed is one of life’s great pleasures. Digging into my oatmeal, the rays of this amazing sunrise spilled onto the breakfast table. I was out the back door. 

Life is like that. If you sleep late, don’t look out the window and keep the curtains closed, you miss the good stuff. If you slog to the day job and don’t notice the amazing ice pattern on the red berries outside your office, you miss out. Make long-range writing plans, but embrace the present.

While we are launching ourselves into a new year of writing, ebooks and digital media, (oh my!) don’t forget to stay in the now. Your future might be right in front of you, trying to get your attention. Will you take the time to see it when it waves?
