The Pause Before the Norm

We\’re in that null season now, when the days hang suspended between the holidays, waiting for one to end, the next to begin and normality to reclaim life. These are the hours that bunch together to form the visible seam in the underbelly of time, where the years are stitched together. This is where we pause, draw a hopeful breath, and begin anew.

Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy 2009!

  1. nicely written words.we do pause here before we begin anew, that\’s so true. time to reflect and renew. that\’s the good thing about a new year, it\’s a clean slate isn\’t it? if we want it to be.and a happy, healthy new year to you too… when it gets here.;-)

  2. These are the days when my husband works extra long shifts and I am stuck at the house with my two heathens with no car, so that others can have a few days off after Christmas and before New Years…not that I am complaining or anything. Hope you have a great 2009.

  3. In the past I have spent this time thinking of my fickle resolutions, like losing weight etc., but this year I look to 2009 with impending doom of economic collapse and job losses and war. Am I hormonal or has the American media finally just scared the pants off me?
