In the moment -

Why does it matter, this changing of one year to the next and yet it seems to do so.  I drove up Mt. Tamalpais this morning.  It was cold, clear, and windy, as I walked along the crest of the hill looking out at the ocean and city.  I felt cleansed by the wind, air, view.  No one else was around, and the sea, rocks, trees, and birds were all part of me, and me, of them.

I come home to these words by Paul Klee:
Imagine you are dead.  After many years of exile you are permitted to cast a single glance earthward. You see a lamppost and an old dog lifting his leg against it.  You are so moved that you cannot stop sobbing.  

Tonight we enjoyed cheese fondue for dinner.  It is a communal meal, delicious and enriched in sharing.  May each of us open even more fully to the magical, mystical, majestic and mysterious realms we share.  Happy New Year!
