Christmas is just 2 weeks away, and I’ve felt guilty because I haven’t started and don’t want to start shopping. Although I’m getting nowhere fast on that front, I did finally get some paperwork taken care of that had stacked up on my desk. I hung the “Bah humbug!” sign my dear sister gave me on the front door, simultaneously beginning and completing my holiday decorating chores. I fertilized the orchids this morning; their appearance reminded me yesterday that I’ve neglected to do it since James passed away in September. I started feeding his beloved “Forest Kitties” – a feral cat colony residing a mile or so from the house that he ensured had clean food and water daily over those too-few months the cancer was in remission; and portrait bookings have picked up, at least for the time being. And I’m trying to get out more to take pictures for fun – for myself; something I had neglected in lieu of the need to regroup and reorganize in solitude, prayer and contemplation. That need is still very much present, but I’m attempting to interject a bit of balance from external influences, at times with great difficulty. I need more balance to get through Christmas and New Year’s. I need it to get through today.
