Ooo, a New Year

Welp, we’ve made it to 2017. Did you eat enough cookies this holiday season? Hug enough friends? – No, me neither! – We must keep the cookies and the hugs flowing. We must be ready to take to the streets if need be, to foist our embraces and our baked goods upon strangers. For though the winding vine of tragic events and the foreboding political future threatens to strangle us, Inspiration wells up inside simultaneously. Already our tragedies are balanced with the welcome of new little lives to our communities. Buds of creative outburst glow on our limbs like flowers. Today we paraded our neighborhood decked in tinsel from rejected Christmas trees. Bursts of howling song flowed freely from our lips. Songs have been brewing and spewing out in one breath, each a fresh, surprised volcano. Am I deserving? Dialed in? Disciplined? Of course not! And yet somehow the compass has been reset. Priorities seem more obvious. “Live the life you love, love the life you live,” said Bob Marley. Cheers to 2017, to a year of expression and rejuvenation. May the natural world continue to astound and inspire. May we stand stonger and more dedicated as protectors of our earth and of eachother, and May the joy of creativity heal us. Happy New Year, Friends! See you at the next beautiful event. See you in the streets.    <3 Rosie 😻
