Reverb BBIt’s December and time for Kat McNally’s Reverb.  What an opportunity for me to take time to reflect on the past year.  What has happened, why and wherefores?  What have I gained or learned in the process?  How will it all help me in the coming year?  Let the reverberation begin.

Day 1: lists and prayers

Welcome to Reverb15! Without further ado, let’s dive in.

In her seventh ever blog post, all the way back in March 2003(!), the inimitable Andrea Scher wrote: “Maybe lists are like prayers.”

What sorts of lists do you have on the go at the moment?

What do they suggest you are praying for?


PrintThe list I have right now is the the one for Susannah Conway’s December Reflections.  It’s a list of photo prompts for each day of December.  The prompts give me pause to rest, to feel.  Who am I?  What do I want?  Where am I going?  Am I doing anything worthy?

In this month of dark mornings and short days a little help and guidance goes a long way.  It is like a cup of steaming hot chocolate, the smell of cinnamon buns baking, warm hugs, sweet kisses and a warm blanket to cuddle up in.  The thought of these makes me feel as if I’m wrapped in a prayer – soft, warm and secure.

What am I praying for?  I’m praying for the right words, hope, peace, love and compassion for myself first of all.  I am praying  that it would spread out to my family, friends, neighbours and so on and on.  Like a ripple in the oceans until it touches all shores.  I am praying for respect and kindness toward all living things.  I am praying for survival of our planet.  I am praying for myself.  Amen.
