Thanks, Gillian!
Words worth living by. I especially like getting rid of something when you buy something new. I want to get rid of two things for every one I buy. I am sorting now and have set up a staging area to sort and clean and be rid of. The lighter the load, the easier to think and function.
Happy New Year!


A definitive guide to the new year...
I love this post.

I suspect that those who lost their fight with cancer could say, if they were here, that 2010 was a bad year. But they are not here to say it. So I would say for a Grandfather, Grandmother, Aunt {beloved friend} and Uncle, 2010 was rotten. But for me just really hard and sad...

2011 will be lived differently though...Embracing some of the points you've touched on above...
Happy New Year Gillian.


a great set to work with

Graciel @ Evenstar Art

you are brilliant. madly, stunningly brilliant! every word rings true. i will meet you, face-to-face, in whatever good season you wish.

love and happy winter,


2010 saw the loss of some young people around here. Not immediate family to me, but friends. So in that respect it had been a very difficult year, and those two mothers I pointed out (in my world, perhaps in many worlds too) I put in the exception.
But that now becomes a benchmark of sorts, doesn't it? How can we complain?
We can't.


My resolutions this year include seeing you again, and taking credit for the good things/ideas/outcomes in my life instead of just the things that didn't work out so well. You are such an inspiration to me.


Happy New Year, Gillian! You've written a good post with a good list for the New Year.

Before dropping by your blog tonight, I was sitting on a chair thinking of what I want to do in this New Year and you're right, for me, last year was a good year with all the usual ups and downs. And thankfully, there weren't terrible downs.

What seems to resonating with me these days is that I want this upcoming year to be about finishing the projects that I've already started, to use the supplies that I already have, to say no to projects that in my heart, I don't really want to do (and to not feel guilty in saying no). Does that sound negative? I'm thinking of it as a time for breathing in and finding my center again.

I DO want to meet you in person in 2011. A trip to TO will happen. Hopefully we can meet then. I'd like that.

Amen, my friend. Amen! xoxox
