After a year of radio silence, I feel it is time to start posting some of life’s little wonders on this blog once again. For the year 2020 I have decided to document life with a different theme colour in mind each month. This month’s theme: black and white.
The start of a new year. The first careful lines on that intimidating blank paper. The writing of lists, the determination to stick to carefully crafted resolutions & the knowledge that you probably never will. Leaving the old behind, while bravely trying to take in all that is to come. Savouring the briefness of winter days, watching birds travel further south while wondering down familiar paths leading you home before darkness falls.
January 2020, with its world on fire in a place far from mine. January, with its loss of an old British friend & its panic over a new, aggressive nemesis. January, with its winter that felt like autumn, its pulling winds & its impatient spring crocuses.
Thank you, January, for your insight & your newness. Thank you for allowing me to take a moment to reflect & reconsider, before stepping into the rest of year…
