Merry Christmas Friends!

I'm enjoying the change of pace with family in Oklahoma, and soon, Missouri. We've been traveling and catching up with people in real time and real life. I've also been catching up with myself and allowing this time to be used to rest and be still when Sebastian isn't needing my attentions. I spent about an hour the night before we flew out making a journal from things lying around my messy space and gathered some pictures and ephemera to add to it along the way. Its called 'Going Offline and Outside' and is meant to be a place to jot down thoughts and reflections while we're rambling around the Midwest.

I think the Christmas season always leaves me with an empty place once its over. Its like a Sunday night. The weekend was lovely but its coming to an end and now its time to prepare for another jump into responsibilities and structure. While enjoying the last few days of merriment and red and green, I'm hoping to look towards new things with purpose and hope.

I hope your Christmas Day is full of fullness. Lots and lots of fullness. I look forward to another year of learning about ourselves and keeping track of each others journeys.
Merry Christmas.
