I often find the end and beginning of a year to be a combination of happy and sad, a little like a wake or a farewell. There is joy and I celebrate, yet can't help feeling a certain emptiness, sadness, a sense of in between.
It's a time when my inner philosophe gets down to pondering, wondering...
It's a time i like to be with special people, enjoying simple pleasures, a time for reflection.
As for resolutions, my lists of hopes and dreams and wishes seems to grow rather than diminish and as long as life continues to inspire and overwhelm me as it does, I consider these lists with frustrated excitement because I'll never live long enough to achieve it all!
Though I will live hard trying!
(Even if I seem pretty relaxed most of the time!).
It's the journey that counts.
I am a creative and practical list maker. I rediscover old ones and laugh at how similar they are to my new ones.

I feel 2017 is going to be an 'ing' year;
reading walking creating eating discovering waiting exploring laughing writing dreaming dancing sleeping observing wondering meandering learning cooking playing sharing crying tasting listening...the list goes on,
but mostly just being.
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
