That fresh clean piece of paper and sharpened pencil.
That blank music staff.
That solid untouched piece of wood.
That empty bowl with the recipe beside it.
It's a great feeling -- the feeling in your gut that says,
"Something good is about to happen."
You just know it.
The slate is clean, the energy is there, the vision is growing stronger.
It hasn't been created yet, it hasn't manifested yet, but the joy is already there.
Something is about to be birthed and you get to be a part of it!
So, you put your hand to it --
indeed, your entire self into it.
You allow the joy to carry you with its great strength --
its wonder swallows all feelings of failure and anxiety.
You are simply caught up in the journey.
A New Year.
365 days of 'fresh material' to work with.
And, you put your hand to it
knowing that Joy's strength will carry you --
its Wonder will swallow your fears.
You allow yourself to be caught up in
the Joy of the Journey,
knowing that something Good is before you --
and you get to be a part of it!
