Getting Ready for the New Year

I am starting the new year by treating myself to an online mixed media course by Misty Mawn called "Open Studio" Our first assignment is to write something to the prompt: "I am here..." I decided to combine the writing with the word I have selected to guide me for 2012...PRESENT. I have always had difficulty staying in the moment, being 10 steps ahead. My New Year's gift to myself is to be PRESENT, notice....


I am here
PRESENT
Rooted and still,
Branching outward,
Growing in place.

I am here
Resisting the tug of time
Pulling me
Out of this moment.

I am here
Held by love
and connections
That ground me.

I am here
PRESENT.
