Farewell 2012, Welcome 2013

This is how I honoured my journey during 2012 on the very last day of the year and celebrated the incoming year.

I walked beside nature.....

Merri Creek, Clifton Hill, Australia

I walked around the labyrinth slowly and steadily with slow, deep breaths, grateful for my path, grateful for my life....

When I reached the centre, I held my hands at my heart in prayer in gratitude and then made my wishes....

I opened my eyes, looked up and saw a sign....

I walked back out of the labyrinth, slowly and steadily with slow, deep breaths...

I wrote down my wishes and hung them on the Wishing Tree...

Lots of wishes on the Wishing Tree, Merri Creek Labyrinth

I walked slowly and mindfully away....

I rested in the gardens......

I shared a delicious meal with some gorgeous friends and made it home in time to watch the fireworks from the backyard.  Me, a celebratory wine and magic.

And today, this first brilliant day of 2013, I lay beneath the Lillypilly with the hard sloping earth beneath my back, reading, writing, watching.  Restored.
