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.
