And so another trip around the sun begins again. Though I am not one for new year's resolutions, I feel quite deeply the significance of the metamorphosis symbolism of the new year. It simply cannot be missed; I actually experienced it quite profoundly and am still deep in the midst of it as we speak. transformations can be time consuming, but are always well-worth the effort.

 tomorrow I am setting off on a grand ole adventure with Asher, wherein we will head north together to see old friends and some family. we will stop at our favorite places and eat our favorite food; we will listen to music and revel in the expanse of time and space before us. i am, needless to say, very excited. i plan on finding a few select treasures along the way to list in my shop, and will keep you all updated as my journey progresses.

this season of winter winds and solstice light is such a time of rest and hibernation, of silence and observation, of simply sitting and letting it go. i hope that you are all able to do a bit of that, in your own way, even as the daily hustle goes on. drink tea and keep your feet warm, it is a sure way to strengthen your heart.
