I love a clean slate.
A fresh sheet of paper, a newly-cleaned whiteboard, a pristine layer of snow.
There’s such beauty to the purity. The blankness quiets the noise of our surroundings, and of our own minds. Into those unsullied white spaces I find my mind naturally expands, while new ideas and possibilities start to grow and take shape.
So it is with a new year... and I am only just wrapping my mind around the possibilities of a new decade!
Do you do anything to mark the start of a new year? Do you brainstorm or reflect, set intentions or make plans?
I am working on a multi-part blog post “Looking Back to Look Ahead” in which I will share with you some of my reflections and insights into the year that’s passed and how those will affect how I see the coming year, and how I'll move forward.
Please take a moment to share your favourite ways of reflecting or refining your vision or just how you treat the annual changeover, I'd love to hear from you!
A new year is always anytime of reflection and planning -- something I've learned -- and learned to love -- as a result of being married to you! After Christmas is past and before the busyness floods in again there's the opportunity to think about what has been and what can be. Set intentions, goals, dreams, etc. and always lovely, animated, wide ranging conversations about the future at the dining table with coffee and pads -- and yes, the whiteboard!

As a visual artist I like nothing more than getting up to my elbows in paint or little plastic toys, or wading in at the deep end in pursuit of an idea. When I am not teaching others in a similar vein, you can find me researching, writing and noodling around in my studio, seeing where my latest lines of inquiry lead me.
