a word,
is clanging around in my head.
 i suppose i will look 
 and see why
i suppose it's a point of view.
i suppose it's connected to gratitude.
 it's everywhere.
winter has finally appeared 
with ice and snow and slippery roads.
 our beautiful earth
abundant in the ways we need.
if we are willing
to do the work
we will share in this

i am thinking about this word

possibly triggered by a cheese (called
no, seriously. it's the word that came to me on my birthday this year. seems to be acting as a guiding light already.

happy new year.

india, oh, yes, by definition i suppose it belongs to lots of us. and i don't usually have a word for the year, but all this warm month it's been hollering PAY ATTENTION!

Abundance is just such a rich word isn't it? It offers so much. I like generosity too - my favourite of all human qualities I think. Lovely lovely shots of your season, thank you.

V - so many images of abundance - good for us to pause sometimes to register just how much we have in many ways. Love the simplicity and abundant negative space in the moon photo. Peace. B
