hello all - wow, after the month of writing every day i needed a break. also, i had felt bad all week with a little malaise of some sort but i woke up today and it seemed a little brighter, a little happier, and a little better. isn't it weird how sometimes our bodies just take what it needs and if you don't give over to it, it will take it from you. i think i wasn't listening so matters were taken out of my hands. as a reward, i get to wake up on a friday in a fantastic mood and enjoying this gorgeous weather.
as they get ready for the christmas tree lighting ceremony tonight, i ponder my own christmas plans. i'm also thinking about christmas as santa paid my agency a visit today. each year santa visits as the agency usually sponsors 8-10 familes that would not have a christmas. it is so beautiful to see as everyone pulls together to make these families happy.
what is funny after a month of very structured posts, i feel almost adrift on what to write here. i haven't taken many photographs due to the work load and early nightfall but i am excited about picking up the camera again, something i haven't felt in about six months. in fact i feel almost as if i've come out of a fog/funk/coma that has lasted about six months. it wasn't the bad mood sort of funk, but instead the....what the heck am i doing with the rest of my life sorta funk....if that makes any sense whatever. anyway....who cares - today is so darn beautiful that i want run up and down the street yelling at everyone to just sit back and look how blue the sky is, and aren't we blessed to have all of these gorgeous white marble buildings, and could you as for a better day to have a christmas parade? it's cool enough to enjoy a chill but not so cold that the marchers will be miserable.
