Ink Stomp revisited

Hot off the presses! Here's short but wonderful video, documenting the Ink Stomp event that took place at the Schack Art Center last October. The beautiful prints created by these young people are now on display at Columbia City Gallery. A reception is scheduled for Saturday, January 18th, 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. I'll be there, hope you will too!

On moving forward...
A wish:
May Light always surround you:
Hope kindle and rebound you
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For,
May your arms Never Tire.
D. Simone

A plan:
Make New Year's goals. Dig within and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year. This helps you do your part.  It is an affirmation that you're interested in fully living life in the year to come.
Goals give us direction.  They  put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious and subconscious level.  Goals give our life direction.
What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to do, to accomplish? What good would like to attract into your life? What particular areas of growth would you like to have happen to you? What blocks, or character defects, would you like to have removed?
What would you like to attain? Little things and big things? Where would you like to go? What would you like to have happen in friendship and love? What would you like to have happen in your family life?
What problems would you like to see solved? What decisions would you like to make? What would you like to happen n your career?
Write it down! Take a piece of paper, a few hours of your time and write it all down - as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose.  Then let it go.
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written.  We can help to write that story by setting goals.
Melody Beattie

And some fun:
I do think New Year's resolutions can't technically be expected to begin on New Year's Day, don't you? Since, because it's an extension of New Year's Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also dieting on New Year's Day isn't a good idea as you can't eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment in order to ease your hangover.  I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second.

Or maybe on January the fourth?
