turn, turn, turn
I am spinning very slowly these days, gearing up just a little at a time. This is a big improvement over January, in which I felt like I was standing still, or moving backwards.
Each day grows slightly longer, each morning I have slightly more energy. I’ll take these tiny increments, I cannot rush the passing of winter any more than I can stop the passage of time. And of course, in truth, I would not want to.
But I feel myself settling in to 2011, finally. Making plans, making progress, tiny baby steps that add up at the end of each day. I feel myself moving forward.
Perhaps standing still in January was just what I needed. I wish that I could have managed to enjoy it more, but hopefully, I have learned that lesson. Sometimes, standing still is good.
Letting life wash over you, smoothing away some of those rough edges.
Polishing and burnishing.
