What I have done each year end/beginning for many years is to make two 8x10 collages--one for the passing year, one that includes goals and visions for the new year. I am a very visual person and this really helps me to get clearer about my life's path. Then I do a mind-map for each collage. Last, I make a journal entry about what I have discovered and would like to create for the new year.
This year I scanned my larger collage and used that as the basis for an ATC. Betty Crocker and Ganesh. Ideas and actions (the dreamer learns to be a doer). Trust, happy in my home and studio. My son figuring in in a prominant way. He is recomitted to being the scholar he is capable of being.
