So, how will you embrace December?
December is a gestation time for me.
Quiet time writing Christmas cards.
Quiet hours of baking and brooding.
I am also feeling pregnant with dreams although I've never been physically pregnant. It was not to be on my life-path.
Perhaps you are also pregnant. Full of ideas, words and hope.
So what names would you give these dreams that seek to be birthed?
I am happily birthing two women's writing retreats. You're invited to join me in my backyard at the Treasure Island Beach Writer's Retreat, April 23-28, 2017. Then, it's off to Bali for my October birthday month! This celebrates my third women's trip to Bali.

Thousands of years ago, she traveled as a young girl nine months pregnant on a donkey under the stars. She and husband Joseph journeyed to an unknown and unwelcoming place to an uncertain destiny.
I see what she saw though we never met.
We meet in the sky this mother and me, an adopting mother.
We understand the state of being pregnant with desire.
What courage you expressed, Mary, to give birth.
May we follow your example and fearlessly give birth to our December dreams!
Who knows, our dreams might change the world.
