New Year

It’s Not a Resolution

Posted on

my resolution is not to have any resolutions
Just relax and enjoy life

My resolution this year is to not have any resolutions. Well, maybe one. Ha…

This is how I see it: A resolution can be a number of things. Resolution can be the number of pixels per square inch. The greater the resolution, the better the photo. Resolution can be a statement that solves a problem or explains how to solve that problem. A resolution can be a decision that you make to do something or behave in a certain way. The act of making up your mind about something. This is one that most people think about when someone says the word “resolution”.

When we make up our minds about something then we go into decision making mode. This leads us to determination, which then takes us to making a conclusion. A conclusion could be the act of ending something. But I wanted to start something. Wait…I’m confused.

I have come to the conclusion I need to decide and determine I should not make a resolution. Therefore, my resolution is not to have any resolutions. Just relax and enjoy life.

Enough said about that

Through the Fog“Since we move in time through a sequence of spaces, we experience a space in relation to where we’ve been to where we anticipate going”  ~ Ching

I love this time of the year. New beginnings.  New horizons.   Old things have passed away.

Walking through the vineyards this time of the year actually brings a soothing to my soul.  Walking the narrow rows of young living vines during the early morning hours can be quite peaceful.  The sun not opening it’s eyes yet as I quietly stroll through the rows of pruned vines.  The dew still on the ground and the fog merging with the sweet smells around me.  The rows tend to disappear into the fog.  The vines are quiet and still, standing at attention as if their commander and chief had just walked by for inspection.  All I can hear is the sound of my own breathing.  I start to sing.  Music soothes my soul.

I begin to think about the vines.  What struggles have they gone through…their souls cut back to bare minimum. They are starting over.  New beginnings are about to emerge.  What is in store for them this year?  The vines will soon bud again and new fruit will spring forth.

Much like our own lives, we need new beginnings.  We need a new start.  Take a walk through the rows of your life and see the new horizons ahead of you…look closely through the fog…it’s there.  It will emerge.  New fruit will soon spring forth…start singing.  Be encouraged…

Cheers,

The Epiphany – Passionate Observers of the Stars

Posted on

This is the time of year when some people celebrate the Festival of Epiphany.  When the Kings (or Wise men) saw the star they rejoiced.  Those wise men had been following that star for quite some time.  They were passionate about finding the new born king.  They didn’t cease their quest until they found what they longed for…that’s true passion.  It was a time for new beginnings.

I absolutely love this time of the year.  New beginnings.  New horizons.  Old things have passed away.

For me, walking through the vineyards this time of the year actually brings a soothing calm to my soul.  Walking the narrow rows of the resting vines during the early morning hours can be quite peaceful.  The sun is not yet opening its eyes as I quietly stroll through the rows of pruned vines.  The dew is still on the ground and the fog is merging with the sweet smells around me.  The rows fade and disappear into the fog.  The vines are quiet and still, standing at attention as if their commander and chief had just walked by for inspection.  All I can hear is the sound of my own breathing.  I embrace the opportunity to reflect on the previous year as I gently walk through the vineyard and make my plans for the coming new year.

I yield to the vines.  What struggles they go through…their souls cut back to bare minimum.  They are starting over. New beginnings are about to emerge.  The vines will soon bud again and new fruit will spring forth.

Much like our own lives, we need new beginnings.  We need a new start.  We seek a new path to find our way home. Take a walk through the rows of your life and see the new horizons ahead of you…look closely through the fog…it’s there.  It will emerge.  New fruit will soon spring forth.  What are you passionate about?  What new beginnings do you see ahead of you…follow it – Do Not Be Afraid….Take a Step…

Follow Your Passion
