Eight Solstice Wishes

On the eighth day of Christmas her Tartness gave to us…

Eight Solstice Wishes

Seven Success Secrets...
Six Writing Tasks
Five Sii---illy Songs
Four Cross-Dressed
Three Christmas Lists
Two Tartlet Minis
And a Boy Toy on a Hay Bale

A couple days ago, Heather (Not Hannah) posted a wonderful blog about the new moon and goals, with a link to a blog about winter solstice. I recommend giving both a read, and they helped inspire what I’m thinking about here… winter solstice as an ending and a beginning… the turn around, when the darkening rounds the bend and becomes the lightening--I love the duality of that… so I thought this was an even better time than New Years to lay out the turnarounds I’d like to make in the coming year…

I wish…

1) That the darkness of extra weight gained over the last five years might be LITERALLY lightened.

2) That my ever fading memory might make a rebound.

3) That dark financial times might find a proverbial cash cow ready to lighten the load.

4) That my mother might find a little enlightenment through self reflection.

5) That fumbling in the dark on this agent search might find SUPERAGENT just waiting in the wings

6) That the gremlins that keep messing up my house might be replaced by house elves who clean it.

7) That my ever dimming organizational skills might begin might turn around.

8) That my obscurity as a writer would be lightened with a publishing contract…

So there… high hopes for the year as we begin lightening

I suppose this means I need to reflect a little and figure out the HOW of all these things… though that SUPERAGENT thing seems out of my control…

I wish all of you a happy solstice and best wishes and happiness as the days begin to get longer again!

I agree with the cash cow ready to lighten the load. I believe 2010 is going to be a very successful and prosperous year.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Are we twins? We are twins, aren't we? We must be since our "high hopes" are almost identical.

Thank you Stephen! let's hope it really IS a year things turn the corner, financially speaking!

And Helen-I hope we BOTH have success with this list!

Have you been listening in on my dreams? How else did you know exactly what I want (well, not the Superagent bit - you need a book before you can want that, but all the rest).

And here's hoping it all comes true.
