2018! Rising From The Ashes! by Teresa Taylor

You are what your deep, driving desire is.
As your deep, driving desire is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.

New Year’s Greetings to our friends and community,

2018! Rising from the ash! Phoenix-like this beautiful community rises. As the horror of the Thomas Fire recedes, may we nurture that profound sense of gratitude for the mind boggling coordinated effort that we witnessed in limiting the devastation, and have that sense of gratitude spread to all areas of our lives everyday. The fire burned away the sludge from my eyes in seeing great beauty in the most ordinary of things and activities. May we be filled with joy and gratitude.

May the sense of community solidarity, the countless acts of kindness and generosity take root and continue to flourish in the coming year creating an even more connected community and even deeper relationship with the land we live and play on. May our hearts explode with love.

May we share our gifts liberally with each other in support. As old structures give way, may we be wise in our rebuilding. May we be triumphant.

May we celebrate the expression of our creative energy in healthy and sustainable ways. May we sparkle, shine and dazzle.

May we live a life of conspicuous grace and courageous resolve. 

What is called forth from infinite wisdom and boundless heart? Resilience. Resolve. Beauty. Truth. Goodness. Bountiful Laughter.

We look forward to co-creating a magical year with you!

Teresa, spirit of Thule, Tucker, Huxley and all at Paradise Found
