"A Fire is burning
The long night draws near
All who need comfort
Are welcome by here
We'll dance 'neath the stars
And toast the past year
For the spirit of solstice
Is still living here"

"We’ll count all our blessings
While the Mother lays down
With snow as her blanket
Covering the ground
Thanks to the Mother
For the life that she brings
She’ll waken to warm us
Again in the spring"

from precious to five years ago

What was the best decision you made in 2016?

Mine was and still is to go ahead with the crazy idea of compiling my experience into a new offer despite my inner fears.

What makes an idea 'crazy'? One that stretches outside of existing comfort zones. Of going places not travelled before. But once we have been there, these places are no longer unknown territories and we can travel them more familiarly.

If the outcome didn't matter, what new territory would you explore in 2017? Tell me one of your more crazy ideas below...

closing out the year with december reflections

With the holidays just around the corner and a huge project that I am in the last act of putting to bed in readiness for its reveal to the world come the New Year, I have decided to take a sort of, kind of sabbatical from this space and join Susannah Conway for her December Reflections project.

Much like the annual August Break that I have participated in, it is a month of photo prompts to share in our online spaces, with words or not. Nice and simple. Weaving some mindfulness and calm into our days into and through the end of year holiday season.

Naturally, I'll be posting my photos each day on Instagram, where you can also explore the growing collection of images from the project community with hashtag #DecemberReflections2016.

If you'd like to find out more about the project and join us, you can do so here.

In the meantime I'd love to hear how you are inviting self care and ease into your end of year plans: please share with me in the comments, thank you.
