Saturday Morning


It’s a season when one gets spread out almost too thin in too many human directions, but come January first I am determined to batten myself down, tighten up, go inward. I feel the day must be marked by a change of rhythm, by some quiet act of self-determination and self-assertion. Everyone earns such a day after the outpourings of Christmas. We are overextended. Time to pull in the boundaries and lift the drawbridge.

  3. Merry Christmas, pal. Hope you and Susan and the family have a fabulous holiday (must confess I am gleefully anticipating the DK Holiday dinner post that usually ensues…) and are able to partake of the pause that refreshes….
