The cold, frozen month of January, marks a time of new beginnings. Named after the Roman God, “Janus” the month symbolizes transitions, looking back, looking forward, taking stock . . .
Coming out of the holiday season, and the hurried pace that accompanies it, I find January to be a calmer, more focused time of year and a wonderful opportunity to set intentions . . .
Consistently, I have utilized this first month to clear out, focus in on priorities and sharpen clarity in life . . .
For me, this process of setting intentions means, in part, to continue to work consistently on the myriad of writing projects I have before me, including the posts on ClunkyShoe. This is no small challenge as it requires careful organization, diligence, uninterrupted writing time, perseverance, and a true belief in and commitment to one’s writing vision . . .
As I am taking stock and moving forward, I want to share some kind, inspiring comments that I have received about a sample of the writing on ClunkyShoe. These remarks came in recently from redstuffdan, a photographer who lives in the Aquitaine region of France. I am including links to the original posts so that you can peruse the content at your leisure. The comments follow:
This humbling remark is posted at the essay Red Flags: “What a wonderful way you have with words – like a talented musician but using the alphabet as your notes making beautifully crafted pieces.”
Redstuffdan, thank you for the encouragement. To readers across the globe, I am thankful for you.
As I am scoping out 2018 I would be quite interested in what you have enjoyed most about ClunkyShoe as well. I welcome your comments below or feel free to send me a note!
What are your intentions for the new year?
Best wishes for your 2018.
