Transitions – © Sue O’Kieffe 2008
I doodled this around the time of Winter Solstice, thinking about seasonal shifts from darkness to light and what might be seen seen from above (way above!) during different seasons of the year. At the heart is change, of course. I love the wildness of winter as much as I love the expectancy that comes with spring.
On my mind right now is what I would like to usher into my life for 2009…not so much New Year’s Resolutions but New Year’s Intentions. 2008 was all about wonder for me. Here I am creating a daily doodling practice where a year ago I would have said I do not draw. Will wonders never cease?! It’s good to let go of those self-defeating definitions, break out of the box, try out new things.
I have been reading stories on Christine Kane’s blog, the stories of women who chose a one word intention for the year just ending and what has transpired for them. Lisa Call’s story about courage was especially inspiring for me.
What about you? Do you have a ritual of setting intentions into place for the coming new year?
