Not much reflection today – even though I think I “should” be reflecting. Well, I am and I’m not – sort of and but not quite – and I dare you to make sense of any of that.
Do I want to live on Vancouver Island or do I want to live here? That is the big question right now – not just for me but also for Simon. I think we’re doing our best to be open to both possibilities. And so – we shall see. First things first – this house has to sell – then we have choices to make.
Meanwhile, I have settled on my word for 2018 – Shine! To elaborate – My Fucking Shine (MFS).
But I think I’ll stick with the simple Shine. In 2017, I wrestled with Home – and boy, did that word come up a lot!
2018 is my year to shine. As a start, I have begun publishing my stories on my blog and I will continue to post one a week – on New Book Tuesdays. I have also sent some selected stories to people I trust to read them and give me pertinent feedback. It’s important to me to focus this year on writing – to put my all into it – one roll of the dice – give it everything.
And spend as much time as possible in the alpine.
This is how I balance my life:
Alpine for the soul
Writing for Creativity
Simon for the heart.
