reaching the end

It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.

I missed the last three days writing. Well, I missed them as in I wasn't here but I didn't miss pulling words together. That is telling. It is time to be done with this 100 day challenge. While there is much within me that screams, "NO! Don't stop! You are so close to being done with this project. Only ten more days!" there is a greater force within that knows that I have done what I need to do here. 

I have shown up even when it has been difficult. I have written even when I felt like I didn't have anything to say. I have been real, honest, authentic. Though I didn't completely restore the withering voice, I think I have some healing and I have ideas on how to go forward with what I want to do with this site, with my words, with my art. 

When I began the challenge, I didn't know that by the end I would be racing toward the next chapter in my life. We move in less than two weeks. Now is the time for sorting, purging, and packing. Now is the time to close up 2015 and lay myself open to even more changes. It is time for prepare for 2016. 

I am going to take a few days completely away and then I will be posting during December with Susannah Conway's December Reflections. A photo a day. Join me?
