As 2014 winds to a close and we embark on a new year, there is much to celebrate and remember in 2014 and prepare and look forward to in 2015.  Enjoy the holidays and time spent with friends and family in the upcoming weeks, get some rest and rejuvenate to hit the road running as January darkens your door. 

I read a quote by Alan Alda (any MASH fans out there?  I used to love watching that show:)) that really put into perspective the mindset I would like to foster moving into the new year...

"You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.  What you'll discover will be wonderful.  What you'll discover is yourself."

Wow!  I think this is a beautiful thought for anyone, but I find myself really relating to it as a writer.  Leaving one's comfort zone and writing with intuitive abandon is so hard but, in doing so, one does travel down the road of personal discovery--a road from which so many can profit in reading the books and stories we create.

God Speed and be well.  May you discover all you desire in all areas of your lives.


  1. Terrific sentimental post and absolutely love the Alan Alda quote. Yes, I'm a huge MASH fan! We have a new channel in the Hudson Valley Area - WE and they play MASH at 7 pm EST Mon thru Fri! Still love those episodes! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours! xo

  2. I haven't seen an episode in years but would love to do so!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well! Enjoy the time spent with Nicole home:)

  3. Oh, I like Mash. A great quote. The New Year will be a great time to start intuiting (if that's a word.)
    Merry Christmas.

  4. I agree, Beverly! Thanks for visiting and Merry Christmas to you and yours as well!
