The symbolic image I envision for the New Year, 2016, is the KALEIDOSCOPE.
(A Kaleidoscope is symbolic of Constant CHANGE. We will all be changing as we move through a new year together, working in our journals and creating new writing assignments together!)
In addition to the 2 blogs, I’ll be working on 2 books that are now in development. The publication date is the end of 2016. One is a book of essays and memoirs, the other, a book of poems.
Coal is a shiny black rock. I actually know it is magic because a piece of coal burns. A rock that burns! Bituminous coal is also called “soft coal” and it starts to burn much quicker than the other kind of coal. The other kind of coal is Anthracite, and that is usually called “the hard coal.”
