It's late. Some nights are like that. Listening to the rain on the roof, thinking of friends who are far enough away that I can't just pop in on them. Sometimes across the city may as well be across state and/or country lines in terms of scheduling time... The world doesn't seem to slow down for us, though does it?
It's the time of year when I want nothing more than to hibernate and reflect. It seems as though that is not going to be forthcoming this year and I feel the resistance to having to try to keep up the pace in my bones. It's like moving through molasses. But continue to move, I must. I'm trying to recognize and allow for the fact that I can't get as much done in a day right now as I'd like, and I'm also taking some precautions like extra vitamin D & magnesium, among other things to try to help.
Here it is 1am and I'm settling into reflecting the coming year. Can you reflect something that hasn't come yet? Perhaps anticipating is a better word. Reflecting on this year though. The story arc of this year has been... As the Merriam-Webster Dictionary Word of the Year accurately describes ... surreal. Nailed it - that's been the best way to describe pretty much everything! I'm looking forward to reviewing and wrapping this year up & sending it off. As apprehensive of this new world we find ourselves in as I am, there is no going backwards, so forwards it is!
And that's probably enough midnight rambling from me! I've been tired all day, I will hopefully sleep well tonight. And may you too sleep well tonight.
