Today is the darkest day of the year

And I made it, I promise I did.

Today is a day of reflection and going inward. This whole month is.

And now that I think about it, I haven’t done much journaling yet,

I have a whole article to write in the next couple of days,

a job to leave,

a job to work,

a business to run,

a year to plan,

and a whole body and mind to care for.

Fun isn’t it?

I sit in silence.

Or at least the ambiance I imagine silence to be.

What will I do with the time that seems so valuable? Fall back asleep?

It feels like it.

So I drink coffee.

It’s the darkest day of the year and I wish I was alone

with nothing to do


in a cabin

in a forest full of snow.

What are you doing today?

What are you reflecting on?

Did you receive my email last night?

If not, that’s okay. Click here to get yours.

I hope you are well.

I will be here,

doing the things needed.

As I’m sure you are as well.

Talk later?
