Hello! I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas. Life over the holidays has been very sweet here. Too much food, lots of reading, and most especially, wonderful, rich lazy days playing with my little son. This is his first year that he has really been privy to the thrills of it all. Hugs and kisses punctuate the hours. My heart is full of the mystery and joy of love expanding my soul. Schedules have fallen away and we while afternoons away at the local swimming pool with its luxuriant hottub. I look up and notice the year has finally eased softly down to its close. I sit up, ahem, as I did have something to say to mark its close.
I've long held the suspicion that people are finer that they realize. I believe we can rise to our own vision of our best selves. Before we go and worry about all the resolutions we need to make to see that happen in ourselves, I bet if we looked a little more kindly on ourselves, like a good friend, we would see the seeds of beauty have already been planted. Be proud of your accomplisments. You have probably made a greater difference than you know.
I feel very fortunate that in my blogging life I have somehow become surrounded by such lovely people, like you. Salut to each of you!
The new year is a promise of light and renewal and I feel blessed to be sharing it with those I love the best. I wish the same to all of you.
Now off to enjoy my cache of lobster and PEI mussels, by way of the fabulous Billingsgate seafood market.
May a fine new year await your pleasure!
