It's here, it really is. The year we've all talked about, waited for with anticipation and uncertainty. I feel a sense of "finally!!" I'm grateful to be in this spiritual vortex of social, environmental and astrological change, I'm grateful to be alive, to listen to the murmerings of my heart, and forage ahead. How about you?

For the past few weeks I've consciously re-affirmed conditions in my life I want to manifest and see flourish, as well as some soul searching, naming and releasing those things that no longer serve me. I was fortunate to be part of Autumn Soulodge, the soulchild of dear Pixie Campbell pictured above. She has created a virtual community where women can circle, go deep, and find support and community while pursuing a path of deep and intentional growth. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, the Winter session will be starting up in a few weeks (I'll be there again) Go here to learn more.
What I'm longing for, envisioning this 2012?
- To connect with community, and that includes reconnecting with the blogging community. My intention is to blog at least twice a week, three times would be fab-u-lo-so! I really miss you, the way you used to come here and read and comment, even when you didn't say a thing and just lurked behind the curtain. I miss the me that used to write to you here, so you'd come and visit. I vision this year as a coming home to my blog and all the ways I can share and connect here.
- I miss my visual journaling, so much. I've recomitted to it again (imagine a ceremony, rings exchanged, vows spoken) a minimum of 20 minutes a day in the form of doodling, writing, painting, cutting, or pasting stuff. Here is my New Years spread:
- I'm comitted to becoming more joyful, more present, less judgemental, growing more fully into my wildish nature - envision an appalousa galloping through the meadow, garlands of roses hanging over her sides, or a middle-age woman wandering along the banks of the river she lives on, straining her ear to hear the call of the eagle, picking up sticks and stones by day, praying under the light of the moon by night.
I've chosen a few words to be my touchstone, arrows that point the way for this years journey:
Presence. Community. Wild.
Have you chosen a word(s) to accompany you this year?
I have all kinds of good news to share, but that's what future posts are for, right? Namaste.
