Ode to January

We spend January walking through our homes,
room by room,
drawing up a list of work to be done,
cracks to be patched.
Maybe this year to balance that list
we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives
not looking for flaws 
but for potential.

Renewal is always a good thing!

ah...look for potential, not flaws. Nice. Ellen Goodman is correct of course... We get too caught up with the negatives and do not focus on the positives.

The second photo..the desk with the chair at the end of the bed...light streaming in...lovely.
