The first day of a brand new year dawned bright and sunny, blue skies, fluffy white clouds and bright sunshine, what a hopeful start!
It is now, of course, quite evident that the world did not end in 2012, or if it did, the afterlife is much the same as the before-life so its all good. So this year can start with new hope, new vision, new plans.
So what plans do I have? I am in the process of designing and knitting a long coat, so that is the first project to finish. I am also determined to study a new topic for each month of this year, so hopefully by the time 2014 dawns, I will be more knowledgable about at least 12 subjects!
Last year marked the culmination of a couple of years of hard work trying to gather together a community of like-minded people to share knowledge, experience and fun and it is now a real spiritual family that we are building, and I hope to encourage its further growth and widen its activities in this coming year and we already have planned a group pilgrimage to Glastonbury, a crystal healing workshop, an incense making workshop, a day of vision questing, and this weekend we have an afternoon of storytelling and folk tales, so it is looking very good.
Whatever 2013 brings though, I aim to face it head on, with a smile on my face, love in my heart and a hopeful spirit. So here is to a very happy, healthy, successful and prosperous New Year for all of us!
