Welcome to a new year. Currently it’s winter on my part of the planet, but for many of us it has felt like we’ve been living an entire year of winter within our creative hearts. Last year we were extremely reactive in terms of relating to negative social/news media and our overall creative input/output.
This year will bring positive changes with much greater ‘action’ as opposed to ‘reaction’, thus the nature of our ‘human cycle of changes’ or the flux occurring as a result of cause and effect continues. Many of us are exhausted from reacting to a turbulent previous year, pacing ourselves to ‘hang in there’ in those final months.
This will be a year refocusing on our future actions, ideally coming from a higher moral fiber, and most definitely coming from within our beautiful, creative thoughts and ideas.
From a macro perspective, the powerful will seek more power; the rich will seek to become richer; the poor (encompassing the majority of human life on our beautiful planet Earth – Why Is That?) will seek survival from the overreaching powerful and wealthy; and we creatives (which are found in each sector of human existence) will continue to create. Some to become more powerful, some to become rich or richer, some to make a positive difference to humanity and some because when all is said and done, regardless of the reason, we just can’t help ourselves with the need to create.
The human cycle of life is still at play in spite of our, seemingly, natural inclination towards self destruction yet I most humbly believe it can be we creatives who inspire more of us to do and be all we can be in this new year.
In the “micro” of things never forget you are unique, you are gifted, you can accomplish so very much. Just remember one thing … to believe in yourself! You are your very best supporter (as you should be) so carry on with your dreams and your goals.
Welcome to this great new year. One filled with possibilities, capabilities and potentials. We can make it so!
I wish you most well and prosperous in 2018.

Happy New Year, I wish all of you over there the best and that creativity and good fortune come your way!
Thanks, StJ. Wishing the exact same for you.
Happy New Year Penny. I hope to get more creative this year. I spent a lot of 2017 feeling sorry for myself due to being housebound. I am to change that in 2018.
Have a great year my friend, and make sure you put your heart onto paper.
Hi, Al. Sounds like you’re on a roll. An excellently positive one, I might add. Thank you. Will do my best, my friend.
Still as wise as you are beautiful, Penny.
You have always been more optimistic than me, I hope this time it is justified.
I agree absolutely that those of us who are not rich or powerful will still strive to create, because that is what we do.
And maybe we will make a small but positive difference.
My love, as always, to you and your family.
Thank you, B. I’ve often thought of us from a yin/yang perspective regarding our positive/negative energy flow. Will pass on your loving message to family.
Best wishes to you Penny for 2018, may creativity flood your person, without it we sit and twiddle our thumbs.
