naked across the calendar
A band of skinny hunter-gatherers
blown snow scattered here and there
stumbling toward a future
folded in the New Year...
RICHARD HOFFMAN December 31st
New Year makes me melancholy...I find myself wondering if I wrung enough out of the year that's dying. Did I try hard enough, did I appreciate enough...what did I learn? Luckily there is a Birthday to be celebrated in our house on New Year's Eve, thank goodness, as I am much more myself when there is love to be showered on beloveds.
We have been chasing the East Sussex coastline these last few days...low slung sun...shards of light...lungs filled with icy air...the Downs, the Marshes...It's become something of a tradition.
Resolutions? No...I simply want to "taste and glory in each day, and never be afraid to experience pain..." SYLVIA PLATH
...And as for those undone actions I mentioned earlier...let me remedy one right now...
a heartfelt THANKYOU for taking the time to read this and for your kindness in visiting The Lane in 2014.
