So, did you survive Blue Monday? Never heard of Blue Monday? Well, it’s already passed for this year, so if you’re doing okay now, you can thank your lucky stars.

Blue Monday is a term coined nearly a decade ago to explain why the first Monday of the new year is probably the worst day of the year. There’s the letdown after holiday highs, recently acquired debt, resolutions you’ve probably already started to break, and the worst weather of the year. On top of all that, it’s a Monday. If you survived that day, which was January 6 this year, you probably have nowhere to go but up.

For me, the only downer is the weather. We avoid the rest by treating spiritual occasions as just that, spending December as we do the rest of the year, doing work we hope will inspire others. Then I use January on finances, tidying up 2013 records and making plans for 2014.

I’m also proud to report that last night I completed the first of the twelve caps for cancer patients I plan to make in 2014. Next week I’ll post a picture of that new one. Meanwhile, the picture below shows a pink turban I crocheted last year for someone with cancer.

As always, I invite everyone to join me in a vow to use our blessings, skills, and talents to build a society without poverty or war in which everyone is able to enjoy at least the basic benefits of prosperity and peace.

Meanwhile, send out your positive thoughts and, for those who are believers, prayers for all the suffering souls all around the world!


The World I Imagine: A creative manual for ending poverty and building peace and my historical mystery novel, Lion’s Pride, are available through your local bookstore. They are featured at, Barnes & Noble, and most online bookstores around the world. Both are available for Kindle readers.
