The start of a New Year

The turning of the year always begins a process of reflection and renewal. It’s an opportunity to think about what is good in our lives, and how much we have to be grateful for. It’s also offers a space to reflect on our hopes and aspirations for the seasons that lie ahead, things we want to do, or how we want to be. Although I really know at one level that happiness is a lot to do with how we respond to events and situations as well as those things themselves, its hard not to just react with emotion, or give out a pre-programmed habitual response. So I’m going to try to be a bit more centred and mindful this year and try to ride out what occurs with greater grace. We’ll see!!!

Anyway – it was hard not to react with awe as this little beauty of a long tailed tit came up to say hello to the fatballs.

Left with the use of my left arm/hand only, after a serious motor cycle accident in 2005, I am learning to adapt to life with a brachial plexus injury and have developed a style of playing guitar using open tunings. I love drawing, painting and generally messing around in a fairly loose fashion. Can't describe myself as an artist, but perhaps a doodler with intent.
