Take Time for The Time Between

As New Year's Eve approaches we all start the annual rear view mirror exercise...and then we search for our crystal balls to see what will come. Not sure after 2016 I want that crystal ball.  What results- some regrets, some smiles, some sadness, a lot of worry and fear tossed in too... and a whole lot of "what nows".  That's a lot to take in before midnight chimes. The month of December is one BIG blur.  It seems as if sometime around Halloween someone fires off a starting shot and away we go.  It's a whirlwind of plans, events, deadlines, GET IT DONES,  fires to put out just in the "Nick" of time... and a snowstorm of shopping bags, ribbon, stamps,cards, packages,flour,sugar,sprinkles, twinkles and...

 That is why I adore this week best of all.  The time between when all I need to think about, at least for today, is where my book is and whether I should watch The Crown again, re-watch The Gilmore Girls or read Julia Baird's biography Victoria the Queen, all about Queen Victoria before the new Masterpiece series , Victoria, begins on January 15-can't wait!!   Sure there is mail to open, bills to be paid, dusting and laundry, closets and cupboards to clean out for donation boxes and...but for this week I'm taking my time in  between!  2017 will be here soon enough and with it a world untethered and we will all need to be involved and CARE!  The New Year will come with us all walking without a steady road beneath us and with a whole new list of "DO ITS".   So while the phones and email are relatively still I will be too...No looks back, no projecting forward, just today.  Enjoy the time in between...comes but just once a year!  ...and may the New Year bring peace to all!
