The New Year is an Egg

It’s the first day of a new year. New beginnings, new ideas, new resolutions. A new way of living if you believe the New Year’s Resolutions….

Eggs symbolise new beginnings. New possibilities. Eggs can become breakfast, they can be used as edible paint, you can make face and hair masks with eggs, you can even feed your plants the cooled down water water you’ve boiled eggs in! You can paint eggs to decorate your house with, around Easter, and they can contain surprises – ask FabergĂ©, he got famous for doing this! Eggshells are good in compost and in the garden they keep snails from chomping on your veggies. The membrane of a boiled egg can be used as a wound dressing, and the The Romans crushed the shells in their plates to prevent evil spirits from hiding there. No part of the egg is wasted, everything has its use, the possibilities are endless for the amazing egg!

The new year is an egg. An egg with so many possibilities. We can experience and learn something new, every day. Today I am planting a seed in an eggshell. A seed to feed. An heirloom seed, harvested from last year’s crop in the garden. I am starting this year with something good from the past, growing for the future….

So here’s to the New Year, here’s to the egg and here’s to endless possibilities!
