I. Am. Tired! It’s been an extremely busy second half of the year. Fortunately, the winter break has already begun and I’m truly grateful for it. So, here are my last random things for the year:
1. Unpredictable Weather
We had glorious snow a few weeks ago, and I was almost ready to take my skis out. That snow is now gone but hopefully not for long as it is a permanent feature in some parts of the country.
2. The Mailbox
If you’ve send me letters (poetry books) and I haven’t acknowledged receipt, my apologies I’m not being rude. We had a postal strike here that saw a prime minister resign. I’ll let my fellow countryman, Trevor Noah, tell you about the new prime minister because he does it best. But I’ll say this, each time a woman rises to a leadership position, I celebrate! Anyway, I’m still waiting for delivery on both fronts.
3. A Word for 2020
In recent years, I’ve gotten into a habit of coming up with a word that serves as a guide and anchor. This year’s word was simplify, and I did. But that’s a post for another day.
4. On Looking Deeply
“You do not need to be a poet to see a cloud in a piece of paper.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
So, if I’m quiet and you don’t see me around the blogs, I’m probably looking deeply into the nature of things and working on my guiding word for the next year.
On that note, I’d like to say THANK YOU for reading and supporting my writings, as well as sharing your stories with me. It’s been a great year, overall.
Wishing you and your loved ones a magical and restful holiday season!
