what are you feeling









hi, how are you? I am wondering, you see i always have huge expectations even when i have none:) (do you guys know what i mean?) the change of the calendar is big right? what i mean is i could not wait for 2008 to close, so much so i threw away the key but the problem is i still know and remember what lies on the other side of the door. I am feeling nervous it's january 9th and i don't have my year planned:) i don't feel much different. wait it's winter, i love the winter why you ask cause things are dormant. ground is frozen, trees are bare. they are not in hurry, they take there time and do it right and by spring they have a plan. so maybe i should too. maybe january we look back, stare hard, study and my favorite and most difficult- let go. then plans begin to form, gathered inspiration starts to bud and before we know it we begin to bloom- ya that's it!

I'm feeling anxious. The revelry of the holidays are over and I'm remembering that the fears of 2008 are still alive in 2009. But... I try to snap out of it and remember to think positively. I've got lots to take care of.

I feel good. Thrilled the holidays are behind me, convinced 2009 is going to be a superb year, hopeful about the changes to the world made possible by having intelligence in the white house. Now ask again in a week or two, for example when I'm PMSing and I might give you an entirely different answer.

i am feeling extra anxious this year already...i am waiting for things to happen and i feel like i am in a limbo of sorts. sorry if that was a little heavy.

nadia, you totally make me smile. i was feeling a little scared of what the new year will bring and the unknown, but now i feel like there's so much to look forward, i can't wait. let's jump into the new year together!

Ilona said...

I just found your blog and I have to say that I kind of fell in love with it. Your photos are so amazing and beautiful!

I love the new year, don't look back only forward, I guess I don't have any definite plans a trip to paris and the rest will come along? Spring s such a wonderful time, although its so cold at the moment it feels a world away.

At a glance I thought those golden berries in your previous post were a pair of beautiful earrings.

like always I have not much of plans. I live day by day and I don't know if I really like it. It's weird but life always makes plans for me.

Aran said...

i am feeling red! lovely, lovely touches nadia. we are in florida in the middle of winter and it feels like spring and it's just beautiful. green, blue and yellow. they make me happy.

I love how the sunlight hits these photos. I feel ready to embrace - the winter, my family, my work. And I like your point about cold winters; it is a perfect time for reflection and sitting still. We too can hibernate.

jimena said...

such a cruel winter outside and so warm inside.
your photos are so sweet!!

jennifer said...

i was feeling quite blah today but you are pretty darn inspiring!

lejardengirl said...

I am feeling quite content..I love how the winter months go in slow motion, for it gives us time to learn to be still with ourselves and to center ourselves...I love what you said not just with your words but also with your images, thanks

Krissy said...

Happy new year to you! I know exactly how you feel. Hope the year brings nothing but amazing things to you!

Liz said...

Happy New Year and yes, I so know what you speak of... I have only gone as far as choosing a word for 2009 - resilient - but made no specific plans, am finishing up the ones that carried over from last year, and then will look up and look around and see what I see... this year a plan will maybe form each day... love your photos today, love your blog

heidi said...

Am feeling cautiously optimistic, amongst the gloom & doom. Am feeling warmed by your reds, Nadia! -xoh

corine said...

I feel slow like winter!!! Lovely photos so warming!!

I asked my sister where to get the caramels à la fleur de sel in Montreal, I will get back to you soon!!

omami said...

here is the adress where to buy the caramels: Van houtte Laurier street on the corner of Hutchison!!

Have a great week end!!!

Fym said...

I wish things could be a little dormant like winter, always. Now everything and everyone seems to be constantly in a hurry, like racing against time. it's draining, and i dont have good stamina.

But I guess we'll all have to face and get prepared for this new year. Good luck to you too!! =-)

Bonbon Oiseau said...

oh i know so well...i think when you say plans start to form and gather, you are right---things will fall into place...i read somewhere not to put so much pressure on yourself the first week of the year--wait until the 15th of jan... for that--pretty good huh?
i'm behind that one all the way!
deep breaths--out with the old, in with the new and calm and peace for our minds a little in the new year.

such pretty photos to remember those things to!

My Castle in Spain said...

well i felt full of beans and now suddenly i feel a bit insecure about the coming year. I think it's because of the worldnews.
In a funny way,i like the slowness of january and then suddenly stress takes over because i'm late on the valentine's cards.

Your lovely red pan tells me to take it easy !

jennifer lorton said...

I feel like I need a kick in the pants. I feel that last year I allowed too many other peoples goals and agenda's to be prioritized ahead of my needs. I feel that a bit of selfishness would benefit me greatly in this new year. Thanks for asking. Maybe writing it will give me the clarity to make it so.

Georgia B. said...

Anne in Oxfordshire said...

I feel like you, in fact I said that the other day! Hopefully things will sort out and it will all spring into action:-)
