And a New Year Begins – Again

Soon the sun will rise on the first morning of the year, and we will look forward with hope to what the coming months will bring. And I still wish for this…

The sun has set on the old year. In the dark of night we welcomed the new year, then waited for the sun to rise again on its first day. As the sun has risen, will rise, at the beginning of each day.

And yet we see that night, that midnight, that morning, as special.

Because as we cross into that new day we are beginning a new year. Traditionally it’s a time for looking back, for taking stock of our lives, for looking forward with hope and resolution. For me it’s a time when I wish we could go forward into the year to come like children, eyes wide open, looking around with wonder, going with open heart and open mind into the adventures that await. Because life is full of adventures, whether we wish it to be or not.

But unlike children…

Our World, Our Hands

The Paris Climate Conference has ended with an agreement that the world must work to change the energy trajectory we have been following, must adopt and create technologies that allow us to live in harmony with the small planet we inhabit. Now we hope.

Margaret Mair, Globe in Our Hands, Original Art Margaret Mair, Globe in Our Hands, Original Art

Fiery red surrounds
The watery world
These faceless figures
Hug and hold,
Shield with bodies
Draped in garments
Green as
Fertile hills,
Yellow
As falling sunlight,
As sprouting daffodils
That welcome spring
Time, when
Hope comes dreaming
Of a flourishing future
Where loving care
Is enough
To keep
Our world
Alive and thriving.

On Being Reborn

After the events in Paris last night my thoughts circle, my words falter. Too much pain, too much blood – in Paris and in so many places around the world. Here, last night, was just a small taste of what the refugees flee and victims of terrorist all over the world face daily, and yet these events were so great to so many of us.

May all that is best in the human spirit rise above such horrors. My thoughts are with those who have been killed, my heart goes out to all those upon whom pain has been inflicted, my prayers go out to all of us.

Before the Rebirth, Margaret Mair, original art Before the Rebirth, Margaret Mair, original art

Look.
The darkness is not complete
The water does not engulf
The waiting body
Curled fetus-like
Around the heart
Of its matter.
It will rise again,
Pressing down
Against those strong feet
Caressing the ground,
Raising those
Protecting hands
From the lifting head;
Now it is
Gathering strength
As it waits
For the fog to part,
For the light to dawn,
For the water to recede,
For the ground to become
Solid again.
