Hello From the Other Side

Hello. It’s me. I’m in Minnesota grooving to Adele as often as possible, attempting to stay healthy this Winter, and feeling my way into 2016. For better or worse, my functional internet took a vacation over the holidays which meant more time for family, reading, writing, watching, and baking. Most importantly, it allowed for an unintentional, fresh outlook of the new year to fall gracefully on my lap…well, actually it arrived via journal writing but more on that later!

Before I get back to my writing, some highlights from 2015 and new ideas to share with you all…

Nicole Franzen from La Buena Vida captures the details of her travels beautifully, especially the written words from her recent time in Miami.

Inspired by this Brooklyn letterer, looking to travel through her words: 26 Letters 26,000 miles.

I’ve watched this piece of history multiple times. Joe is my hero.

For all you Pacific Northwesters, thisĀ A New Beginning in Script Writing workshop looks divine at the creative, community space Field Trip in Portland.

Are you entering into 2016 with one word or a thought in mind? I’m inspired by the suggestions from The Chalkboard on ways to express this theme during the new year (maybe you’ll find your words at Goldpress where words are highly valued!).

If you did not get around to reflecting on 2015, there’s still time. Mother Mag created a thoughtful list of questions to ask yourself as the new calendar year begins. A simple gift to yourself.

Finally, If you need an excuse to get off the screens, phones and all social media, I’ve got it: another Mercury Retrograde has taken over the next three weeks. Just be sure to check out the Brown Ink Holiday Sale before you’re completely off the grid! Off to create my word for 2016.
