My life changed in seven days.
I packed my bags and flew to Martha’s Vineyard. I was nervous. Meeting new people has always brought me a great deal of anxiety. I knocked on the front door of The Noepe Center for Literary Arts knowing I had arrived later than the rest of the writers. The woman who answered was also from Florida, a kindred spirit. Before I opened my suitcase to unpack, two more attendees invited me to dinner. I breathed. I knew it was going to be a special week.

Joanna Marple of Miss Marple’s Musings chooses one word every year that will represent what she wants to be or how she wants to live for that year. She’s on her fourth word and I’m on my first. Instead of making resolutions that I may or may not stick to (I still can’t speak Spanish) finding a word with meaning for my life seemed to be a better opportunity for growth.
Woo hoo! It’s 2015! I spent the first day of January cleaning out the messiest closet in my house. I have to say it felt awesome and symbolic. I have bags and bags of stuff to donate. Stuff that has been sitting in the closet for years. I realized that I don’t need to set goals for this year that’s kind of like adding more stuff to my already messy closet. I need to look within and see what I’m holding onto. Too much clutter prevents creativity and freedom to be me. I need to let go and enjoy the journey. Oh, what a journey 2015 will be!
Here’s something a little different. I wrote a short story for the holidays. I had read a very moving Facebook status telling of the loss of a family member and how this time of year is especially difficult. So many memories. It got me thinking and then writing.
