Christmas Ice

Christmas is over, but it was just magical with about a half inch of ice coating everything.

We are looking forward to the new year now with gratitude.

Family and friends have enriched our lives so, we feel truly blessed.

Thank you

My basement workshop has turned into a lair.
Stuff piled high on the benches and deep on the floor,
narrow pathways to a forgotten purpose.

A morning spent organizing and cleaning has changed the air.
Tools put away, surfaces clean and expectant of new projects,
It is a first step, not back, but forward.

I spend my energy wisely,
it is life force, squandered thoughtlessly in the past,
but so precious now.

We are not who we think we are

I am eager for winter. This morning there was an unexpected light snow, the weather has been very cold so the flakes are super large. The air seems cleaner after the snow, everything is so quiet and some how pure.

Living in four seasons always gives you something to look forward to and the change marks the time.

Reading Thomas Metzinger, "The Ego Tunnel," this morning. " The brain is best described as a complex system continuously trying to settle into a stable state, generating order out of chaos."
