I know its not just me...
Christmas has all been put away,
the evenings no longer sparkle with fairy lights
and, even with the expected January 'warmup' giving us a taste of spring,
the atmosphere -
and reality -
seems somehow stripped bare;
reduced to the most basic
The retreat came at just the right time...
the perfect combination of
(Tibetan singing bowls);
all serving as reminders
that there is still beauty and color;
all encouraging me to get rid of
the last truck full of temptation
and refocus on what's important -
I won't please everyone!
