Coffee and a Blog

Sunday mornings are my favorite. The house is quiet, the street is quiet, the world around me seems to be taking a collective breath.

I am thinking about the upcoming year. I believe that 2007 will be about making a life. (Every year seems to have a theme, 06 was change, 05 was self accepting.) We are very close to finishing the house. It is beautiful and I feel so blessed to be soon living there. I am ready to possess it fully - hang pictures on the walls, curtains on the windows, gather friends around the table.

In ways, I've been living disconnected. Lots of time to myself, not working, very little stress. That is going to change soon. Shortly I will be returning to work and all the waiting I have been doing will come to an end.

Sometimes good things must end so that better things can have life.

Do you notice the year's theme in retrospect -or is it one of your resolutions?

The theme started happening when I wrote in our Chirstmas letter one year to friends and family that in the coming year we would attempt to be kinder and gentler with ourselves. I couldn't get it out of my mind. As 06 started approaching, again I just knew it would be a year of change. Now all of that change is beginning to stablize. For the first time in quite some time, I am content where I am and want to get on with the business of living and enjoying the moments as they present themselves.

I never really thought of these themes as resolutions, but in a sense I guess they are. They do help me to focus and also to appreciate what it is I am trying to achieve in the bigger picture of this life.

Thanks for asking Rob.
