What word did you choose as your travelling companion in 2013? How is it working for you? Where have the surprises been?

If you didn’t choose a guiding word, what word sums up your year so far? And why?

I didn’t pick a word this year. My attention was elsewhere at the time. Looking back on the year to date, I suppose that my word for this year would be “emotional.”

I have been wrapped up in so many emotions this year, slinging back and forth between fear, joy, anger, frustration, relief, satisfaction, guilt…I’ve run the gamut.

I really do feel that I am on a roller coaster. Right now, I’m on the way up. I can hear the click click click as we slowly climb. I’ve got my hands up, but my seatbelt is tighter than tight.

A nervous giggle bubbles up, and I can see blue sky all around.

Worrier that I am, though, I’m already imagining cresting the peak, pausing at the top before the sudden drop, the roar of the wheels on the track, the wind rushing past, and the full-throated scream that surely will be torn from my breast.

Looking over the side toward the finish, I know that it will be okay; but, I’ve got a lot more to get through before I am done.


My friends Kat & Meredith have provided a wonderful new opportunity for inspiration through August Moon. Won’t you join us?

What is August Moon?

Once in a blue moon, what would you wish for?

On 21 August 2013, we will be experiencing a “blue moon”. There are varying definitions of “blue moon”, but the one we’re working with is the third full moon of the season. Whether you’re a star gazer or not, full moons are undeniably powerful times. As we transition into the last quarter of the year, we are inviting you to join us in responding to a series of prompts designed to bring you closer to all you wanted 2013 to be. We reckon that now is the time to ask: the universe will hear you.
