Breathing In -- Breathing Out

Winter Solstice 2008 - Beginning again. No regrets, no guilt. Just take what I've learned from my successes, and from my mistakes, and start MOVING (literally and figuratively...), one step at a time. As my Buddhist teacher often says - about returning to the breath after being distracted during meditation - "begin again, fresh". So I'm beginning again "fresh" this first day of the new sun cycle. New day, new breath. Same goals, new commitment.

Those Carrot Ginger Muffins would taste great with my Ginger peach tea. I'm missing you at the island!

Thanks for your comment on the pic. I agree about the smiley face. It doesn't match the mood of the book, but I'm happy to get the darn thing out, and this pic doesn't embarrass me because it wasn't posed. Who really looks at the pic anyway?
