Today I have the choice to become a new person

—-if only it had started a bit earlier.

And though I’m still coming down from a frantic wake up, I hear the birds and see the trees and realize it wasn’t that bad at all.

Again, I’m thinking of coffee. Or a matcha latte at least!

It’s a chilly Monday morning as I look at the time and think of my next work shift.

With all the time in the world, it seems I’m in a never ending cycle of finding things to do. Is this what life is?

My Haku’s here with me and I imagine My Love at work.

The days seem to blend in with each other and I count and wait for the next time I see him.

This weekend we celebrated Diwali.

And as if my whole past days had been washed away, I lit my diyas at night, and called for Ma.

Today is the first day of my new life—-and my alarm didn’t go off.

I imagine this one to pass like any other but still I anticipate it’s arrival.

I hope you find solace in this new year,

this new week,

this new day.

I do.
