I spent the whole day and evening at Northampton’s First Night celebration, first performing in our little community theater show, “Welcome Yule!” then singing, morris dancing, hearing some great music and also some karaoke ;). The year wrapped up with very wet reveling in the street for the countdown to 2019. So many people and umbrellas dancing in the rain! So different from last year’s brutal cold as we welcomed in that year.
I decided to take a small pad with me (3.5″ x 5″) and make quick sketches or doodles. This is a sampling of what happened.
I think I ought to do this sort of exercise more often; lately I’ve felt a little stagnant as I approach my daily blank page. It’s one way to investigate possibilities without getting attached or bogged down.
May your year bring you what you need to take care of your body and soul, and may you find joy in offering whatever your gifts are to the beings in your life.
