A year in review

“So how’s your year been?” he asked gently. I sat dumbfounded in my therapist’s chair. Not really knowing how to answer this cunningly simple, yet complex question. The Year of The Horse was certainly fast.  At times when I look back at the year it’s as though it widely cantered past me while I’m still saddling up!  It was a year which brought so much, and yet there were costs … Continued

An entire weekend lay before me.  Long and languid meandering like a lazy river, no calls to make, no where to have to be. “What shall I do?” my mind asked my heart. “Do nothing” my heart replied. My mind grappled with the concept. Squirming as it usually does when the idea of doing nothing is presented. After all there were emails to be answered (aren’t there always?) accounts to … Continued
