“According to my experience, the conventional notion of a lover cannot be always true. The unqualified truth is, that when I loved Estella with the love of a man, I loved her simply because I found her irresistible….I knew to my sorrow, often and often…that I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be….I loved her none the less because I knew it, and it had no more influence in restraining me, than if I had devoutly believed her to be human perfection.” Pass the bath salts?
Oh, Little Charlie Dickens, you really do have such Great Expectations

May the new year bring refreshing change: the taste of sun and wind; a healing rain, warm, whenever needed; and a bit of mud that’s mindful of Mother Earth.
May the new year reveal loving boundaries, new doors opening, and always a place to sit and rest.
May the new year bring eyes for unexpected vistas, even when the view remains the same. For there is beauty in the windows of the chain link fence, each grey fast-traveling sky, those evolving patterns of clay tracks that say, “Farewell, I am moving. Friend, I am here.”
