Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

still, not quite...

D and Bud went to the trailer property without me.  When they first left, I had a twang of envy. I remembered too late that it was the Solstice and therefore, a wonderful time to be out in the woods.  When I finally got what I wanted - time to myself - it was hard for me to settle into the quiet house.  Weighted down, I suppose, from the pressure to best use this unexpected boon of alone time.  Putzing around with a load of laundry, wrapping presents, clicking some photos.  I was drifting and couldn't settle.

Last night I was thinking about the end of the Lotus365 project, not knowing what to do in 2014, I bumped through thoughts of what to do next.

I recently discovered STILL.  She does such amazing work.  I was encouraged by her warm online invitation to try it out.  Today's photo is my first attempt yet the result of an accident, which I'm sure is obvious.  But this image is the most interesting out of all the various things I tried.

Maybe this image says something about where I'm at right now.  I'm spinning from all these new things in my life, trying to slow my movement and find a center.  Probably not a bad way to start the seasonal year.
