Doors, they open ~ they close. Allowing us ingress, egress and regress. That is we can come in, go out and return.
Thinking about the New Year fast approaching, 2013 and how there is some similarity to a door.
Unlike a door, time is linear, and we move in one direction only, except in our memories.
Like a door, each new year opens at the stroke of midnight on December 31st, full of possibilities, opportunities.
Do you think about the opportunities of a new year?
I like that we have a fresh start once a year.
Taking time to ponder the potential of the new year and taking stock of the year that’s passed is an exercise good for the heart and soul.

What will I do this year?
I have the opportunity to change my life.
How many times have I said that?
Every time it is spoken though, I do mean it.
: : :
If I can sustain the effort, I plan to…
save more money,
speak more carefully, especially words that will build up and not tear down,
be more outgoing,
be more generous,
extend more grace,
be kinder, I don’t know others back-story,
send more handwritten notes to encourage my friends,
walk the dog more,
eat healthy and lose weight,
have a positive outlook,
take lots more images and learn more camera techniques,
spend more time with friends and family.

Like this knob on the more than century old Dusty one-room school house,
the opportunities of a New Year beckon.
