Well...it's that time of year again, the time to select my guiding word for the year. This year, with both of my daughters' impending graduations a day apart this summer, I've been giving a lot of thought to this year's word. I guess I always do, but this one is particularly meaningful for me as the year will mark the beginning of adulthood of my youngest child which, in turn, means more great changes ahead for me as a mother and a woman. I chose to add the image of a feather as a symbol of a quill to mark the beginnig of writing my own new story, as well as representing flight from the nest for my children.
I've been asked to consider more teaching this year which I'm very excited about, and the completion of more university courses ahead (year three is challenging and thrilling all at the same time). A new 52 WEEKS project has begun and there are so many wonderful (and scary) things happening in my creative career in general. So here's to the year ahead!
