out with the old


Over the next few days I shall be 'completing' 2014 with the help of these insightful questions which I originally found three years ago via Megan. I have done them every year since then and have found them incredibly useful in processing what has passed, and as a springboard into the new year. For me it's a much more meaningful exercise than party-poppers and fireworks and all the false midnight jollity. This year there is much to be thankful for and much to look forward to, but there has also been gut-wrenching disappointment and sadness, and the possibilities of the new year seem much thinner and more well-concealed than in past times.


One of my primary goals is to make more art, and try to work through whatever it is that has so far prevented me from full creative expression. I am both excited and fearful about this.

See you next year!

Dear Sue,these questions need a special attention and state of the spirit... Maybe they will help me to find the exact answers and build the general picture of my 2014? But by now I can see it in my mind in colours, including the black, too...
To have a goal is already a step to an optimistic and joyful New Year. I wish it to you most sincerely!:)x
Happy New Year's holidays to you and your family!

Many thanks Sue, yes recovery is what's needed, at least in part. And I too hope that 2015 is a kind year! All good wishes to you and yours also.

Sue, thank you for sharing the link to these very interesting questions. Some of them seem similar to questions I regularly ask myself, but all are presented in a much more organized way than my own swirling mix.

You know how much I appreciate your talent and imagination. I am looking forward to seeing what brings to and from each of us in the New Year.

Best wishes to you, dear Sue. May 2015 treat you well. xo

Sue said...
