I tend to set a big goal to work on for a year or several years.
Last year my metagoal was creativity, and I think I did well with it .. attending a lot of readings with Port Veritas. Taking some improv classes with @rachyrach1 and continuing to write, blog and make poetry.
I feel like I had a great creative year and a great reading year with Minerva, the Walker Library and my Kindle 3/Keyboard I got as a birthday present in June.
So I wanted to have a major thing to focus on in 2012.
And I thought of Spirit.
I am a theist, if not necessarily Christian. I have felt connected at pagan gatherings and at First Parish UU. It’s a wonderful feeling.
I am also doing better working with silence and recognizing the spirit in absence.
I have also become more prayerful.
All I hope to continue and to work on in 2012.
I am also considering joining the choir at First Parish and planning to change churches over the winter.
And hoping to have a more internal year in a way with my spirit, but also connect more with people.
I am looking forward to 2012 .. and the Mayan calendar just ran out of room.
Happy New Year!
