Setting intentions for the new year…

Greetings and happy New Year!!!

Rather than going down the rabbit-hole of committing to concrete and often unrealistic resolutions for the new year, I’d like to begin 2018 by setting some intentions that offer a little more wiggle room. Speaking for myself, this means exploring the process and becoming less attached to outcomes or specific “goals”.

Here are a few that come to mind…

  • Look for ways to collaborate more. This can be through creative pursuits, volunteer work, and dialogue within and across communities.
  • Wellness… cooking more, exercise, meditation, and reducing stress.
  • Nurture friendships and look for opportunities to meet new people.
  • Spend time in nature.
  • Make more music and stay open to the many possibilities.
  • Love more.

Wishing you all peace, good health, and creativity in the New Year!

With love,

DPG

Thoughts on love…

A nice capture of me celebrating the love and union of some dear friends. The ceremony brought together a beautiful cross-section of community and was a sweet reminder of the transformative impact love can have in our lives. There is a lot of fear circling around out there motivating acts of hate, isolationism, and violence. But we have to remember that racism and fear of the “other” is learned.

Nelson Mandela put it best by saying, “People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

I believe if we act from a place of love, wounds can heal.

With an open heart,

DPG
