We find ourselves at the end of yet another chapter.
A metaphorical closing,
a storing on the top shelf of this beautiful cabinet we call life.
I smile at these moments past which have painted themselves in my mind. Knowing they are just that.
Stories we will tell ourselves perhaps far into the future.
My intention for this fresh-canvas year is to not only be fully present as often and as wholly as possible, but to live each of these moments as if I were thirsty for them.
I also hope to be conscious of the imprint they leave on me and to recognise the power of perception.
Our mind is ultimately the place where these memories become preserved in gold or turn sour.
I want to explore the terrains of this inner landscape we call the mind, I want to really look, really feel, really create, REALLY be. real.
I want to sip slowly on each moment knowing that stories aside, this moment, right now, is life.
Could it be that we are simply here to witness the extraordinary beauty of being, and is this enough?
So, here we find ourselves.
On the precipice of new beginnings,
new heart aches, perhaps old ones too.
But first, let us enjoy the sunset.
Here's to 2016, here's to you, here's to me.
Here's to a Goodbye which precedes a most delicious Hello.
