New Years Eve

Out with the old, and in with the new right? I guess it's a time for reflection and resolution making.

How will you be spending your NYE?

This year (for the first time ever) I will be spending my NYE with my local Sangha, meditating and listening to various speakers talk about purification. Should be interesting. Usually, (I have to be honest) I get pulled along to a house party where I drink too much and make silly conversation.


  1. That sounds like a lovely, peaceful New Year's Eve. I have a few friends doing something similar -it seems like the end of the decade has provided a real base from which to reflect.

    Enjoy your Sangha!
    Keep up the excellent work -love your blog!

  2. I will be spending New Years with two other couples and their teen/tween children and my family (1 tween and 1 teen). Some day I would like to try a more meditative NYE, this will be lots of good food and some good wine and good people.....I guess that is one of my questions as I learn more about the "middle way" and mindfulness and meditation, much of the day to day modern world is not about having lots of time for reflection and yet I sooo want it woven into my to have both? A question for reflection in the New Year.....

  3. I was hoping to watch the Blue Moon rise at 5 pm and spend some time reflecting both on the old ways of 2009 and the new possibilities ahead for 2010.

    Its Cloudy!

    Perhaps this is my Auspisious sign for the new year... neutral!
