A friend posted this on their Facebook wall today and it spoke to me. I love what it says about the need to enjoy life, read good books, make art and surprise ourselves. I am still searching for an answer on how my blog will flow this year. I decided that some things had to change for me to continue blogging when I found that I wasn't enjoying reading as much due to the pressure I was feeling to write reviews. I actually stopped reading for awhile and knew that things had to change. I love reading and it has been a constant in my life since the first grade. My plans for certain in 2012 are to read whatever I choose and from my shelves as well as the library. I plan to make art in some way as well. I pulled out my book of Mandala art:
I find it relaxing and calming to color the drawings. A few other ideas are to expand my basic knitting skills and explore scrapbooking. It's about balance for me, finding a way to have fun but not feel stressed about what I am involved in.
Thanks to everyone for sticking with my blog in its ups and downs. I appreciate your friendship and wish you all peace, love, happiness, and the joy of wonderful books in the New Year!
