I worked on this collage based on the Chariot card in the Tarot. It was exciting and eye opening to look for images and colors and shapes that said 'forward progress' to me as well as balance and harmonious use of both assertive and receptive energies. I really love the collage I ended up with, although I don't think it is quite finished yet. Now it hangs on the wall near my desk, inspiring me and nudging me forward as I dream my way into my new business. I am working my way through several books about business planning and envisioning, using both traditional methods and newer, visionary methods to create a business plan and model that reflects my passions, interests and background. I am doing this with a few other people who are also designing their own business plans and visions. It is hard work, it is scary, it is enthralling and invigorating. I am learning so much about myself, and about what is can happen when we open ourselves up to possibility.
I thank my fellow travelers on this amazing journey, and hope that we all find ourselves at the end of it in the future we had dreamed for ourselves, or even better!
After a year or more of neglect, I am ready to return to my blog. I am a 50-something woman ready to shake adventure, fun and creative work out of my life. I am, as seems to be the case with many of us, in the midst of change. I think that I stopped blogging thinking that I would finish some kind of transition and arrive at a new (settled) place in my life. Instead, I seem to be be in continuous change, and perhaps that is more the reality of life. So, here, standing in the river of life, I find myself, open arms and open heart, ready for whatever life brings on.
