At Peace.

The Solstice is over and the days are growing longer. The year is almost out. Stress levels are declining around here, and they probably are dropping at your home too.

There’s a strange peacefulness this time of year, when the guests are gone and the visiting is done and we take a few moments to ourselves. A stillness in the air. A silence around. A stagnancy behind the decorations and pamphlets and present wrappings. Like everything decided to pause until it’s time to get back to work again.

I’m glad for it. I’m not the most sociable person anyway. I like a bit of time to myself and a bit of time for Jon and I after so much time around other people.

Everything is cold and dark and empty and quiet. It’s pretty nice.

TTFN and Happy Hunting!
