I tend to see it as a milestone simply to put actions inspired by the seeds planted at Hallowmass into actual practice.
There are a few things happening.
In the practical world, i'll be working at another hospital for three months. That will be an interesting experience, though i've been there before, it will be time to build upon existing friendships and forge new ones with folk i've yet to meet.
It will be a time for professional development, new ideas, learning new ways to work and building on the good old ones.
It will take me out of my comfort zone-never a bad thing.
And there are my plans for my personal interests! Bloody hell, that sounds well!
There are those things that i do because we all have to, and those that i do because i want to, need to, am driven to. These are the things i am making time for this year. And the things that deserve the time i will give them.
Exploring the history of the craft from a traditional perspective (as far as you can in a modern world) and concentrating on the practice of it (it's easy this time of year to get stuck in the armchair-or is that my age)?
Making my present home my hearth as it's still quite new in my mind (i've been here a year now), what can i do with it?
More walking the land i know and love, and building on that relationship where I can.
Planning the time will be interesting in itself. I'll be blogging about my progress (hopefully-time allowing).
And posting about my musings in the process.
So after all this pondering, i'll make a decent start at some point.
Wishing all a happy and interesting 2011.
