What will you dream into existence in 2011? What will you answer YES to that will bring you the long hoped for joy? What time will you take between now and the turning of the grand clock, to honor your last year and welcome your new year? Are you “almost ready” and waiting for something…
Call a circle right before dinner to give thanks. Then once you are seated, take gentle control. and invite each person to share what they are grateful for as you all eat dinner. You start, and have one person next to you who is ready to share and is not surprised about this. (ignore any grumbling and forge ahead, it is so much more interesting than sports, or the weather or little Sally’s gymnastic class)
Last night, we had a Winter Solstice ritual around the fire with my friend Christine Arylo after the call we had with 100 women for the Bluebirds of Happiness. Will you call your own Bluebirds in this year? What was Solstice like for you. This time, marking the return of the light after the longest night of the year has me smiling into this sunny day with gratitude.

This is dedicated to anyone who, on this day, feels lost or lonely and has no one to have Thankgiving coffee and pumpkin pie with. Dedicated to those whose hearts have been battered around until it hurts to breath. Dedicated to anyone who, last year was with someone they loved and this year, find their table missing their presence. I called it a prayer to open the heart, but I don’t know if that is what it is or not…but it is the conversation of my own heart today, it is more of a rant to open the heart and in truth, I have to go mash potatoes so don’t have time to edit it as well as it should be.
Lady of Living Water
I call to you from the sands of life
Bring the holy grail of your healing
Here are five questions of worth to consider. Really it is a little journal assignment to remind you how wonderful you are – do you have the time? Perhaps you can make the time…get out your journal or open a doc and jot down some notes, it will take 20 minutes if you don’t try to think too hard, just write what comes up.
