Volume 1, Issue 12
Happy New Year!

As the year comes to a close so does Volume 1 of the Dirt Path Press. We are ushering out the old as we set up a new system for delivering Volume 2 in 2012. As always, we welcome your constructive feedback about our changes.The theme of this month’s newsletter is “New Beginnings.”

Why close the year with “new beginnings,” you ask? Because you can’t get where you need to be without knowing where you’re going, and what better time to figure that out than before you embark on your new adventure? This month’s issue reminds us that, even in the pursuit of our new beginnings, we must always remember that what we really need is always within reach, often just beneath the surface of the way we live our lives.

In gratitude for the personal and professional foundations we built together in 2011,

Quote of the Month

“By being human, I stray and dream of lives other than my own, and soon I am busy wanting something else, somewhere else, someone else; busy imagining something just out of reach to strive for…acceptance and a strong heart will crack them like a shell, exposing a softness that has always been, exposing a soft thing waiting to take form.”

Mama Odie reminds us that sometimes what we want is not actually what we need.

This Month’s Story

Figuring out that you need a new beginning is often the most difficult part.

“The hangers, however, don’t have judgment about his growing up one way or the other: when the clothes are too big, they simply don’t work anymore.”
