Well, it’s finally 2016. I’ve been waiting for it for a couple of weeks. I needed a fresh start and a new perspective after a rocky finish to 2015 (see here). On New Year’s Day I participated in a yoga workshop. I’ve been doing yoga off and on since 2002. This past year they started offering class over the lunch hour at work and I immediately jumped in. It’s been a bright spot in my 9-to-5 job; I even went in on my day off JUST to do yoga.

Anyway, so I participated in this 2-hour long yoga workshop yesterday. The class started off with burning a piece of paper that had something we wanted to move on or leave behind in 2015. On a second slip of paper we wrote a goal or intention for 2016 and tucked it under the corner of our mat for the entire practice. I wrote…

 

LIVE WITHIN MY PASSIONS

Pretty big intention, right? And then I started thinking while preparing this post, what are my passions? And that’s this week’s picture. They say if you make your New Year’s Resolutions public, share them with others, that you are more likely to meet and maintain that goal. Since books and the blogging community are part of my passions, I’m sharing my intention with all of you.

I wish you all the best in 2016. And keep an eye on Scenic Sundays. I hope to share my journey towards living within my passions here.

Scenic Sundays was inspired by the last couple of minutes on CBS Sunday Morning and was created in part to help encourage me to share more of my photography.
