2020 Year In Review / 2021 Word of the Year

Once again a year has come and gone at a pace that seems to increase the older I get. For 2020 though, there were plenty of reasons; many of them were not good. My intention to choose a word of the year for 2020 was lost in the churn. READ MORE….

As I sit here in the last hours of 2016, I look back on a year that continued in the arc that was started in 2015.  I continued to nurture and grow my creativity.

2015 – Emergent – A Year In Review

2015 New Year, New Adventure

I stalled and sputtered with this blog last year…I guess I just wasn’t ready.  2014 was a busy year.

I began pushing out all the negativity, stress, unhappiness, and soul sucking day to day living that had left me feeling like an empty shell.

I struggled with finding a direction for this blog. I got too caught up in trying to structure and define it.

It also fits right in with what I’m doing in this blog as well. In essence, this isn’t really new to me, I have been doing this for years in my personal journals…To continue CLICK HERE
