It's the quiet time of winter, when the nights start young and the mornings aren't sure when to start, and the year draws down to an end. Not just the year of months and days, of calendars and sessions and appointments, but the year of the stars' wheel and the year of the planet's heartbeat, drawing down. The quiet days before the calendar rolls over are good times to consider a span of time, what's been done in it, what's been left undone and unsaid.
I've done a lot--bouncing around for a good part of the summer, launching a novel, sailing in the Northumberland Straits and walking the dog. I've left a lot undone, too. My desk is cluttered with incomplete things I mean to do, vellities of hopeful intent, watered down by the endless supply of distraction and diffusion.
Let us resolve to firm up the completing of things for 2014 and mark it as a year of great doing, whatever the scale, and of goodness made manifest in the completion of good deeds.
I wish all Mom's chilluns a fantabulous year ahead. Waste not a drop of it on shame, nor on blame, nor on regret, but look forward and do with a will.
