This year the snow came early and it fell in abundance. It makes me feel hopeful about EVERYTHING!
As soon as I heard it was snowing, I was ecstatic! It doesn’t snow often here in Missouri City, Texas. And this is really early in the year for it too. I captured some really nice shots that I’ll be uploading to my Flickr account over the next few days.
Where the Inspiration led Me
It made me think of the possibilities of all that I want to accomplish in the coming year. I was inspired to increase my probabilities of success, just because it makes sense today. I want to start out aggressively. That way if I taper off (as I usually do) I should have moved forward quickly enough to be able to coast a bit.
Coming Up with 2010 Plans
Like most people, I’ll be reviewing and planning this month for next year. Originally, I was planning all conservative resolutions for the Read Write Poem group I joined for 2010 poetry resolutions. Today that’s changed. I’ve taken the weather, the images captured, and the exhilaration of the day as a personal sign to just do it.
And if I can keep that going throughout other areas, then next year will be a real adventure. This month, I’m setting up my plan for 2010, as clearly delineated as I can make it. It will be a plan forged in courage and the inspiration sparked by today’s early snow.
I’ll close out this year with a bang. According to the Poetic Asides guidelines posted by Robert Lee Brewer, the submissions are due January 5, 2010. I’m going to finish this month. Tasks include selecting the best, not more than 1 poem per page, between 10 and 20 pages, and editing the poems to make them sing.
And, since find I rather enjoy this writing to prompts and participating, I’ll write the weekly prompts from Poetic Asides (Wednesdays) and Read Write Poem (Fridays). That way I can continue to be involved in communities. I don’t want to break the practice, and revert to my usual uninvolved routines.
Are you working out your plans for 2010? What’s on tap?
