“January is here, with eyes that keenly glow,
A frost-mailed warrior
striding a shadowy steed of snow.”
– Edgar Fawcett
After several days of above-normal temps, along with sun, rain, and pea-soup fog, it has turned colder and snowed. It’s a fitting start to the month of January in the Northern Hemisphere. Snow and cold are expected here in the heart of winter, but not necessarily desired unless you own skis or a snowmobile. I desire a gentler winter, with less snow and none of that below zero crap.
I also desire football time with the home team through January. A few wins in the playoffs will help take the chill from the air.
It’s a new month and a new year and I’m not throwing out any resolutions or an inspirational plan outside of retirement. I don’t want to. The year is going to act as it wants and I’ll follow along. I will get to yoga when I get there. I will write when I have time and a creative thought. I will ride the bicycle when the breeze beckons. I will volunteer when it taps me on the shoulder.
No schedules this year other than the work one. I’d like to take the year as it comes, maybe with a little less busyness.
Less busyness, a gentle winter, football wins, no resolutions, no schedules.
Do you think it possible?
