Well here we are, some of us in the deep freeze, as the world keeps turning toward the morning. I’ve had a lovely 12 days off work, some of that with family, cooking, talking, visiting with friends. The last few days I’ve had at home–more cooking, lots and lots of rest and a little bit of knocking long-standing tasks off a much ignored list. In the new year, I want to read more, meditate more, exercise more, and in general, take better care of myself. So best wishes to all of you. If you have set intentions for the new year, I wish you well with them. If not, I wish you well in whatever fills your days.
