Oh, January!

So long, cold, bitter and dark

Leaving me alone


The New Year hope fades.

Resolute, Transformation

Hibernate and Cry


Forced to look within

Release what no longer serves

Reborn in the Spring


Old Man Winter’s Love

Brutal, Strong and Fatherly

Lessons learned, Growth gained.



New Year Reflections~


Happy 2015!

Wow! I survived the holidays! I am here in the New Year!

I welcome the changes, though parts of me are dying,,,a new self is emerging.

I envision my daughter and I finally in our own place, living our lives to the fullest potential.

But…I am grounded in muck, my emotions are wild and my head cloudy.

With the winter, I find the need for withdrawal and introspection.

Knowing that in the spring, a new life will be sprouting.

This New year will reflect the person I always wanted to be~



The following entries I wrote on New Year 2004, they still very much relate~


I want…a bright future, with my daughter,

in the garden, healing animals.

I want…my health, and health for my family; 

and wealth, enough to get by.

I want…to live peacefully, to be content with myself,

and with others.

I want…education, knowledge,

and for my mind to always want more!

I want…to laugh, to cry, to always be in tune with my emotions.

I want…to wake up everyday and do all of these.

I want…to smell incense, hug a tree, to pray and meditate

and to hear symphonies.

I want…to paint, draw, color;

in a book, in the air, or in my mind.

I want…to create, to imagine, to dream

and never stop…

I want…to never stagnate, procrastinate,

complain, be ignorant or non-compassionate.

I want…to see the world, to explore

to live my life the way…

I want.


Dreams of a life

that has not happened yet.

Memories of a life

long gone.

Taunted by the mind.


One path,

One person,
