Happy New Year

I found this quote in the New York Times Magazine that eloquently says how I feel about writing this blog. And, it also speaks to the encouragement I hope to give to you in the coming months.
It was said by an award-winning poet: Lucille Clifton.

"I think everyone has in his or her self the urge to express . . .
Cooks do it with food, there are people who do it with hair,
with clothing, fabric. I loved words, always, the sound of
words, the feeling of words in my mouth, and so I did it
that way."

Here's to creating something satisfying in 2011. We can do it.

  1. Happy New Year, Joan! I look forward to hooking in to your blog for inspiration and a to get a sense of how your passion is nudging others (including myself). I have found self expression in the work I do as a massage therapist, but it has also presented itself as a silent and dynamic conversation with the person on the table. I am richly rewarded during each treatment by this exchange and for that, I am truly blessed. Thank you for your insight and motivation to share.

  2. Yay Joan!
    Happy New Year to you too!
    I know that you will be doing great things.
    I can't wait to catch up with your blog.
    It has been intense in the last weeks, but we're all happy.
    Love you!
    Elsita :)
