moving ahead

Use your imagination not to scare yourself to death but to inspire yourself 
to life.          Adele Brookman


The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes 
but in having new eyes.                    Marcel Proust

This is so the season to think about who we are, what are we doing that fits our goals, and what comes next. For me, as a writer, I am thinking of the stories I will want to bring out in 2016. Several are running around in my head. One firmly and the others possibilities. A lot of writing happens before fingers hit keyboards or pens paper.

Soon, it'll be the shortest day of the year and from then on, it's brighter each day. We can think that way about our own lives-- no matter what the outward circumstances might be. It is a choice.

Love the photo and the quotes. Looking forward to the return of the sun, and perhaps even some days without rain.
