against blue sky
red leaves
vibrant and alive
a color I've looked for
all of my life

It's a new year. 2012. What does this year bring for me? I see art and poetry in this year, more than last year. I see more writing than before. My writing muscles seem to have atrophied and I have to bring them back by writing flash fiction, poems and journaling.I want a year in which there is calm and solitude, more forays into nature and more time to be authentically myself.  This means taking time in the morning and at night to read poetry, write and meditate. It means me, being me, no matter what challenges I face at work all day. I must preserve that time and those activities to keep me sane. And part of it means posting more consistently on this blog.

I almost started a new blog to honor my commitment to writing flash fiction, but why add to my obligations. I'll wait until I'm ready for that. For now, I hope to be here more often and hear from more of you.

Please also share your art and poetry with me.
