This year is coming to its end, and like every year’s end, I get a bit anxious and sad. Maybe it’s the countdown, I dunno. Any sort of relief comes with Day 1 of the New Year. I get a feeling of hope and renewal. Funny how days on a calendar can invoke such feelings in me.
I like to brainstorm things I will do in the New Year, and for 2012, one thing I’m going to do is incorporating more art and creativity in my life. When I took a memoir writing class a few months back, I really found myself feeling energized by these new (to me) writing processes. I found it very healing as I made connections I hadn’t before. A few weeks later, I happened to come across this website for healing and writing.
So on January 1, 2012, I will embark on “One Year of Healing and Writing”. It will be an additional blog site that I will either post as a link in the Blog Roll, or add a page next to the “About” option. In this new blog, I will do the exercises from “Year at a Glance” and see where this journey tales me. Swing by and look at the “Year at a Glance” site and see if maybe you’d like to join me 🙂
