"The afternoon glow is brightening the bamboos, the fountains are bubbling with delight, the soughing of the pines is heard in our kettle. Let us dream of evanescence, and linter in the beautiful foolishness of things." - Kakuzo Okakura
December is a time of reflection that I can never ignore, and some of it is foolish and not very beautiful. As time goes on, that feeling is less and less. For years now, I have made lists of what I would like to see of myself the following year. When I was young, my mother gave me a unicorn glitter globe that I had sit next to my bed. I would tape that list to the bottom of the globe, and when the new year arrived, I would read it and replace it. Funny, but every year without looking, I somehow accomplished the things I set out for myself. I do it even now still.
I will be posting two different lists a week throughout the month of December, as well as try to post a review of the nook and books I have currently finished. I want to step up this blog a bit since I have been neglecting it more than I like.
December is also a great time to get my writing groove back on. I hope to get a good start to the ending chapters of KIN and finish the last short story Joey and I need for our first collection in the "secret project". Then it will be edit, edit, edit!
I will report back at the end of the month, but for now, I hope you will enjoy the lists and reviews!
