what i will do more of in 2010:

lay in fields of grass looking at the sky
ride more bikes
wear as much color as possible
grow a serious force-to-be-reckoned-with strawberry patch
eat more ice cream
plant more flowers
feel my bare feet in the beach sand often

2009 lessons

2009 - what a year. 2010 - what a year it will be. i am looking forward to a new year....this last month has been intense.

what i've learned or learned more of in 2009: things are what you make them, life is challenging but worth it, life is complicated but worth it...and even more so Because it's complicated...., it's good to cut the strings to your past sometimes, friends are SO SO SO valuable, always find time for the things you are passionate about, learn to feel gratitude daily even for the simple things because this is what often determines your mood and joy in life, laugh....a lot, take risks, have fun even if your life isn't exactly as desired....laughter, silliness, funny faces, dancing, and playing is a necessity.
clearly 2009 was yet another year of growth.

2010 theme

secrets. mysteries. untold tales. stories between friends. silliness. acting out. surprises. spontaneity. all of this is on my mind this week. a lot brewing.

I am in the middle of watching Julie and Julia...makes a person want to have a blog with a certain theme...at least in my case it does. The movie also makes me crave buttery rich foods that I can sink my teeth into...mmmm.

As 2010 approaches, I am reminded that I haven't chosen a theme word yet. Does anyone else do this? Last year was 'create joy'...the year before was 'trust'....I think iIam still waiting on the rest of this week to unfold to choose the appropriate word/theme....something I can work towards, or keep in mind. What's your word for 2010?

it's not that easy bein' green



It's not that easy bein' green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves,
When I think it might be nicer being red, or yellow,
or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy bein' green
It seems you blend in with so many other
ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over,
'cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles
on the water,
or stars in the sky

But green is the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly like
And green can be big like an ocean
Or important like a mountain
Or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be,
It could make you wonder why.
But why wonder, why wonder?
I am green, and it'll do fine
And I think it's what I want to be.
