I needed to be silent, to retreat into my inner-self, to conserve my energy.  My family is in the transitional stage.  There are small changes happening in our lives, but they are the heralds of the greater changes to come.  I believe that I am on the brink of a new healthier, happier, gentler phase of my life.  I opted for changing and yet, for few more moments, I needed to cling to the familiar while figuring out my own small rituals of accepting the conflicting emotions, letting go of the past and welcoming the long anticipated future.

    I feel the same sense of retreat at the moment. I think this is the right time of year for self-reflection too. There’s always a sense of new-ness and possibility in the new year. And yes, I feel the same way about morning pages. I don’t want to see them again! I also have a half-dozen journals/notebooks around the place and am in the process of trying to simplify everything. I think having a small book for location drawings and a sketchbook for at home is a good system and one I’m working towards. Is there a brand of drawing journal you like to use? I’m hunting for recommendations at the moment…I want to buy a large size one for work at home.
