Magical Moment Mondays: New Day

New Direction, New DayYes, each day is a new day so in that sense every day is magical. Today is even more magical because it is the beginning of the year—the first workday back after the holidays. It can be a difficult transition and yet there is the sense of possibilities hanging in the air. Ask yourself, What will this year bring? How will I share myself with the world this year? Who will I meet this year. What connections will deepen this year? What are my dreams this year? What’s my new direction? Welcome new day! Welcome New Year!

To the New Year
By W. S. Merwin

With what stillness at last
you appear in the valley
your first sunlight reaching down
to touch the tips of a few
high leaves that do not stir
as though they had not noticed
and did not know you at all
then the voice of a dove calls
from far away in itself
to the hush of the morning

so this is the sound of you
here and now whether or not
anyone hears it this is
where we have come with our age
our knowledge such as it is
and our hopes such as they are
invisible before us
untouched and still possible

XOXO Rachel
