January

Is the day after
a year long party
where we sit back
looking at unwrapped 
gifts
expectations
ups and downs
laughter
frustration
tears
quiet moments
and noisy ones
bubbles fizzing,
sipping life's goodness

A toast to
presence!

    1. Yes, I’ve always known presence is importance, but it seems to hit me harder every year. It’s a bid for attention that stops me in my tracks when I feel I’m just going through the motions. It’s easy to go into auto-pilot, but not so good to stay there.

  1. My OLW for the quarter–conscious–mirrors your call to pay attention to now. I think for us teacher-types, this is especially hard, because we are always in planning mode at work. Thanks for the reminder to pause and be.

    1. I struggle to just take a deep breath and enjoy where I am. Everything seems to be done on frenetic mode and I’m ready to part ways with that aspect of my life.
