The time between Christmas and New Year’s is, for me, a time between, a time of rest and renewal, of honoring and preparing for the year to come. I notice more deeply the light and the dark, and I sit with a book in my lap and a cat, and I look out and within. I notice what is happening inside; I feel what stirs. What is mine to bring forth?

This is a time to receive, to receive my own needs.
