Winter Solstice is upon us as well as the end of 2010, a decade since Y2K and the excitement mounts for yet another fresh year/decade. It is the time of year when both trite and occasional gems of profound thought abound. Questions are certainly in the air during this time and I find myself being pulled into another year of hope. Some of the thoughts being thunk include;
~failure can make success more satisfying
~there is a big difference between being authentically different and being different for difference sake
~there is an eerie pattern to jump, purchase, partake in the majority of trends, fads, products, modes of thought that change today like a whirlwind and seemingly without pattern...the cleaning up, fixing (when possible), and undoing of such leaps are unravelling much potential progress.
~the power of wonder and dreams is truly amazing...to be a hero is within each and every person http://veryawesomeworld.com/awesomebook/inside.html
~the belief that bad things happen to good people. Often. For no reason. the belief that good will prevail.
~shedding a life aches.
