Clear a new path
brush away the dirt
gently prepare for change.
Wash away the compulsion to rush,
wander the grounds one slow
step at a time.
Feel the peace of
No resolutions pledges promises
Notice pure stillness
Regard Distill Reveal
There is time enough between
spaces of doing
With broom in hand, begin again
clear a path
sweep the temple steps.

Beginning the new year in Harmony!
Yes! Warm regards and blessings to you, Lynn.
Lovely words and images to usher in the new year. Thank you Monica.
I discovered your blog through Bridgette Guerzon Mills' blog, Contemplating the Moon. I wanted to tell you how much I love your photographs. I'm a photographer also, trying to incorporate encaustic into my work.
Makes a person want to stop . . . breathe . . . take stock. I especially love the blue door. Happy New Year.
I took an encaustic class once, and loved it. Such an easy way to combine texture and color. So many methods…so little time!
Best to you, too Deborah. May we be happy, healthy, and do our best to live with ease…
