Happy New Year!!! 
"This is your LIFE.
 Do what you love.
 and do it often.
 If you don't like something.
 Change it.
 If you don't like your job. Quit. 
If you don't have enough time. Stop watching TV. 
If you are looking for the love of your life. Stop.
 They will be waiting for
 you when you start doing things you love.
 Stop over analyzing.
 All emotions are beautiful. 
When you eat.
 Appreciate. Every last bite. Life is Simple.
 Open your mind. Arms and heart to new things and people.
 We are united in our differences
. Ask the next person you see what their passion is
 and share your inspiring dream with them. 
Travel often; Getting lost will help you find yourself.
 Some opportunities only  come once. Seize them.
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them
 so go out and start creating.
 Life is short.
 Live your dream and wear your passion."
-The Holstee Manifesto

on the last day of 2011.
the robins came.
i can't even begin to
describe how happy this made me.
i stood out in the field
taking their chorus in.
breathing in their sound.
to keep it with me.
til spring.
it was exactly what i needed for the last day of 2011.
i welcome 2012
with open arms.
it does not matter what 2012 brings.
all that matters is that i live each day to the fullest.
bringing my A game everyday.
celebrating the moments.
the rest will be as it should be.
welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.

I understand how you felt .. that singularity with nature .. nothing else intruding but the pure pleasure of feeling all around you there and then .. that is true peace !
