Welcome the Twenties

I’m really not one for New Year’s resolutions but given that this year is a bit of a big deal (and I love the sound of living in the Twenties), I have written down a few New Year’s intentions ~ the sorts of things I want to focus on and how I want to fill my days, encouraging me to find and create “more faith, more health, more art, more music, more… ” 🏡

The image above is an old one that I’ve edited slightly ~ originally created in Bryce almost 20 years ago (2002). It suits my current mood.

A new year drifts in,
Bright with possibilities;
Welcome the Twenties.

Have yourself a loving little Christmas

This year has been such a mixed one for us, and we’re not alone. So here’s to the New Year 2020 ~ may it be full of love, peace, health, and good times spent with family and friends.

Happy 6th Annaversary

My WordPress blog turns six today! Not that I’ve been on WordPress much this year. Life continues away from my little blog but I do miss it. No excuses — I’ve simply been elsewhere doing other things — but I couldn’t let the anniversary slide by without acknowledging it. Six years!

Quite a lot has been going on… I just don’t have much to ‘show’ for it. Yet. Ever the optimist : )

I am still surrounded by art and making art, although it tends to be mostly digital these days, and I will be taking a few of my paintings of the non-digital variety along to the Christchurch Art Show again this year. Not much else to report, really. But it is good to be back here in WordPressLand. Maybe I’ll get back into this blogging thing again. Maybe…
