The End -or- the Beginning?
Kaleidoscope: Collecting Images of Light and Dreams
I’ll sing a farewell song as 2015 comes to a close. My writing has appeared in many publications this year and I am thankful so many publishers, editors and readers found my work worthy of their time, efforts and reading enjoyment. Most of all, I am thankful for the shared time we spent together in 2015. And, I am so proud that I shared the work of 6 writers here on the blog this year!
The symbolic image I envision for the New Year, 2016, just ahead, is the
A Kaleidoscope is symbolic of Constant CHANGE.
I’m making an INTENTION to VIEW life filled with BEAUTY, COLOR and extraordinary PATTERNS of light and dreams. This is my INTENTION for 2016. I’ll be writing articles throughout the year with the magic of a Kaleidoscope in my mind as I write.
