Fly Tribe Word Hop 2012

Word for 2012: Be

The practice of choosing a word at the new year to be a touchstone for the following year has become an internet phenomenon that has grown over time. My word for 2010 was create and my word for 2011 was focus. After giving this a lot of thought, as I usually do, my word for 2012 came to me tonight: be. Just be. Both simple and profound at the same time, my word covers a lot of ground and holds great meaning for me.

Be authentic.

Be honest.

Be real.

Be true to yourself.

Be there for those who matter.

Be yourself.

Be creative.

Be curious.

Be who you want to be.

Be mindful.

Be thoughtful.

Be kind.

Be brave.

Be strong.

Be at peace with yourself.

Just be.

Quilt Retreat and Friendship

Today I realized how much the Heart of the Valley quilt retreats and friendships mean to me. There is a buzz of creativity in the YMCA Camp Hazen Lodge as we all come together for three days of quilting, sewing, eating, and talking. This is a place for friends old and new to share family style meals and special times together. There is a view of Cedar Lake out the wrap around windows in the lodge which brings a peaceful feeling to all. The surroundings are beautiful and there is time for a walk with friends to explore the woods or to sit by the huge stone fireplace and share stories. I have been going to the HOV retreats for many years and it is always a time for renewal and inspiration. Friends are so important and spending a weekend with friends in creative pursuits is life affirming and empowering.
