Embracing the Familiar

Before I begin a new journey, I take note of where I was and where I am now and where I want to go from here.  What will I need to bring with me?  I could randomly throw everything I see into a suitcase and hope that I will have everything I need.  This works well for some people.  I don't think I'm wired that way.  I take my time and meticulously prepare lists, carefully pack, and then I am ready to begin.

Sometimes the best journey to take is to return to where one began.  So much has changed in the last few months that I feel the need to surround myself with the familiar, the comfortable, and the ordinary.  And so I return to my writing roots ~ By Lantern Light.

My hope for the new year is to embrace the familiar, to be content with the comfortable (and uncomfortable), and to find beauty in ordinary days.
