There's a tree in the woods near my house (above) ... and to me, it looks like a giant tuning fork.
"Invented in 1711 by musician John Shore; a tuning fork is an acoustic resonator in the form of a two-pronged fork with tines formed in a U-shaped bar of elastic metal (usually steel). It resonates at a specific constant pitch when set vibrating by striking it against a surface or with an object, and emits a pure musical tone after waiting a moment to allow some high overtones to die out."-- wiki.

I know very little about the metaphysical aspects of using tuning forks... although there are those who believe that you can "reset" your chakras by using a set of tuning forks that are specifically tuned to a certain tone or vibration level... in order to bring oneself back into balance. You can read more here.

The point being (or at least for me)... is that there are times when we all need a sort of "reset" button to our lives. For a lot of folks... it is the onset of the New Year. Resolutions are made; promises to ourselves or others... with the intention of getting back to the things we love, our best health, prosperity and success... these, indeed... are the stuff of dreams and grand intentions.
For me at least... it can be so much simpler.
Take a walk in the woods.
Read some poetry.
Make something.
Listen to some inspiring music.
Think positive.
Make and enjoy a cup of tea.

The choices are all there... what will you choose to help you reset today?
