i have grown weary and vaguely irritated with the reverb10 prompts.
nothing against the fine and well-intentioned people who have written them,
but i think i have to abandon the project here,
so close to the end,
because i feel like i'll just be repeating myself
reflecting is a good thing - therapeutic, even.
but i want to look forward now.
i feel butterflies in my stomach contemplating the new year ahead.
i can't wait to get to it.
like a new beginning,
tho' it's just a new page on the calendar -
there's something so unwritten about it -
a blank page on which to put my mark.
or my many marks.
so much i want to do in 2011:
words to write,
photos to take,
things to sew,
projects on which to embark,
paint to paint,
gardens to plant,
eggs to gather from chickens not yet acquired,
places to see,
people to meet,
magic to be felt,
sparkle to be sparkled.
i want it all.
