The year is winding down to a close. There has been good stuff and bad stuff. Pretty much life as normal. I guess as one gets older, the loss of friends and family hits a little bit deeper. It seems as if there has been a funeral or service to attend every month this year. But life continues, and I choose the path of optimism. The holes the passing of my loved ones leave can never be filled, but there will be new friendships and new plans for the coming year.
Today is the Solstice, a time of turning inward and making plans, clearing out the dust bunnies in spiritual and emotional corners. I am setting into motion plans which will come to fruition in the spring. I have a good feeling for this coming year. I think it’s going to be great.
