We have been busy tying up loose ends in this place. Long overdue projects are wrapping up, final chapters are being read from my unattended pile of books, and writing for a top secret project is finding the forefront of my attention. There is food to be unloaded from Country Life Natural Food, and meals to be prepared in response to finally filled cupboards. I’ve also been making lists of embarrassing lengths: lists for Christmas shopping, lists unfinished business ventures, lists of wants and budgeting, lists of my personal goals for December, lists, lists, lists! But I am finding a great deal of joy in the knowledge of what these lists will mean in the future— as often, I have learned, the sweetest happenings in life are not centered on instant gratification. And so, there is peace in the waiting in this place.
Happy first week on December, wherever your place is!
